Aciphylla glacialis mortality, growth and frost resistance: a field warming experiment

Geange, Sonya; Holloway-Phillips, Meisha-Marika; Briceno, Veronica; Nicotra, Adrienne

Description

Decreasing snow depth and earlier snowmelt in alpine regions are expected to expose plants to a greater range of thermal extremes. Thus, paradoxically, in addition to increasing mean temperatures, aseasonal frost is likely to emerge as a major determinant of plant survival and development under a warming climate. Through the use of open top chambers, we assessed the effects of simulated warming on seedlings of the alpine herb Aciphylla glacialis (F.Muell.) Benth, sourced from provenances that...[Show more]
