Topography, disturbance and climate : subalpine forest change 1972-2013, Rocky Mountain National Park, USA
Many forest tree species are expected to migrate in order to track suitable habitat due to changing climate (Stohlgren et al. 2000, Holzinger et al. 2007, Bell et al. 2013). Changes in climate will likely alter important fine-scale ecological factors such as water balance or microsite conditions which are vital for vegetation (Dobrowski 2011). Species distribution models suggest that many species should have already begun to migrate to track apposite climate (Rehfeldt et al. 2006, Littell et al. 2010, Monahan et al. 2013). While these models are a good starting point, they do not incorporate ...
