Periodic monitoring over 52 years have revealed temporal changes in the vegetation and floristic patterns associated with what has been acclaimed to be the world's oldest known experimental snow fence, which is located on an exposed high-alpine cushionfield on the Old Man Range in south-central New Zealand. The induced pattern of intermittent snow-lie has been increased by the fence from the normal ∼140 days to more than 200 days (and up to 140 cm deep), estimated from subsurface soil...[Show more]
