Thermal microenvironments and the ecology of the alpine herb Aciphylla glacialis

Briceno Rodriguez, Veronica Fabiola


Alpine areas are often described as a gradient of warm air temperatures at low elevations to cold air temperatures at high. However, plant temperature does not usually follow the gradient of temperature often described for alpine areas; hence elevation per se becomes a less useful predictor of life conditions. To identify causal effects of climate on plant traits, microclimatic factors have to be taken into account. One of the most important determinants of plant microenvironment in alpine...[Show more]
