• The relative role of climate and herbivory in driving treeline dynamics along a latitudinal gradient 

      Mienna, Ida Marielle; Speed, James David Mervyn; Klanderud, Kari; Austrheim, Gunnar; Næsset, Erik; Bollandsås, Ole Martin (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Aim The treeline is an obvious ecotone between forest and tundra ecosystems. Climatic warming is expected to lead to the treeline advancing, although in many cases this has not been observed. This is most likely because ...
