Characteristics of alpine plants and soils along an elevational gradient, Northern Selkirk Mountains, British ColumbiaDownload
Rates of climate change are accelerated at higher elevations, a pattern termed elevation-dependent warming (EDW). Consequently, the impacts of climate change on community patterning and soil development may be particularly evident in alpine environments. Alpine ecotone boundaries, such as...
The Rocky Mountain apollo butterfly, Parnassius smintheus, and its host-plant Sedum lanceolatum, are endemic to open alpine meadows threatened by the encroachment of trees. I explore variability in interactions between P. smintheus and S. lanceolatum relative to the treeline-delimited meadow...
