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...
Dendrochronology and treeline dynamics within arctic and alpine localities in western and central CanadaDownload
The transition from forest to tundra, commonly called treeline, is expected to advance, particularly in northern latitudes. Treeline in two subarctic locales: the western Mackenzie Mountains, Northwest Territories, and the western Hudson Bay Lowlands southeast of Churchill, Manitoba were studied,...
Evaluating terrestrial-aquatic linkages in the Canadian Rocky Mountains: Eiffel Lake and Sentinel Lake, Banff National ParkDownload
This study examined if nutrient loading of phosphorus-rich pollen into small mountain lakes has a significant impact on lake productivity. Increased pollen input into lakes due to changes in vegetation (e.g., timberline advance) may increase lake production. Deteriorated pollen was recorded for...
