Low Elevation Populations Matter

Former postdoc Erin Conlisk’s paper showing that low elevation populations and ecotypes can be critical to upslope expansion of subalpine trees with climate warming just came out in the January issue of Global Change Biology.


Seedling germination paper

Close-up_growth_chamber_seedlingsOur paper on the effects of warming on subalpine tree seedling germination in the field and lab is now out in Forests. We found that warming advanced germination timing for both Engelmann spruce and limber pine, and reduced Engelmann spruce germination overall.
