Land-use change and subalpine tree dynamics: colonization of Larix decidua in French subalpine grasslands

Albert, Cecile H.; Thuiller, Wilfred; Lavorel, Sandra; Davies, Ian; Garbolino, Emmanuel


1. In many places in Europe, trees are currently far below their theoretical altitudinal limit because of past land use. However, under the current crisis affecting mountain agriculture, trees are likely to recolonize the subalpine belt. Addressing the societal issues associated with such landscape change requires predictive tools to assess vegetation dynamics in relation to management strategies. This study aims to analyse the factors determining tree dynamics at the subalpine ecotone and to...[Show more]
