    Tree species respond to climate change at multiple scales, such as species physiological response at fine scale and species distribution (quantified by percent area) at broader spatial scale. At a given spatial scale, species physiological response and distribution can be correlated positively...

During the harsh condition of winter, trees are able to stay alive by changing their physiology such that by staying alive,...

    Knowledge of the response of litter mass loss to climate warming and litter quality in alpine ecosystems is still sparse. Here, we conducted a 507-day litter decomposition experiment along an elevation gradient from 3200 to 3800 m using different litter types to determine the influences of...

    The Canadian Terrestrial Ecosystem Model (CTEM) is the interactive vegetation component in the Earth system model of the Canadian Centre for Climate Modelling and Analysis. CTEM models land-atmosphere exchange of CO2 through the response of carbon in living vegetation, and dead litter and soil...

    An age effect on growth trends and climate/growth relationships of trees can possibly be discovered by analysing the seasonal dynamics of xylem development. The aims of this study, therefore, were to compare xylem formation of young (43 ± 4 years) and old (162 ± 26 years) Smith fir (Abies...
