Effects of climate on Engelmann spruce regeneration and vigor, The
Recent climate modeling suggests that drought will become more frequent in the southern Rocky Mountains over the next century. Understanding how tree species will respond and adapt to this changing climate is vital to guide future management decisions by land managers. Future increases in drought frequency and severity will likely have an impact on the composition of forests. Modeling studies have been used to predict the effect that increasing drought will have on Engelmann spruce in southwest Colorado, but little field data has been gathered to validate this modeling. This study uses empirical ...
