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.
PLOS Ecology Highlight
PLOS Ecology Community Editor Caitlin McDonough MacKenzie highlighted our 2017 paper in Global Change Biology as one of her “favorite slow reads of the year.” Thanks Caitlin!
Seedling germination paper
Our 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.
The Kueppers Lab Group has moved to UC Berkeley! I am accepting MS and PhD students through the Energy and Resources Group and we have lab space in historic Hilgard Hall, one of the first buildings built on campus.
