Record #110929:

Pattern and process of present tree-limits in the Tärna region, southern Swedish Lapland / Leif Kullman.

Title: Pattern and process of present tree-limits in the Tärna region, southern Swedish Lapland / Leif Kullman.
Author(s): Kullman, Leif.
Date: 1991.
In: Fennia. (1991.), Vol. 169(1) (1991)
Abstract: Potential natural tree-limits for Betula pubescens, Picea abies, Pinus sylvestris and Alnus incana were assessed by analysing age structure and annual growth increment. Despite long history of human presence, tree-limits are concluded to be in dynamic equilibrium with climate on secular time scale. Study does not support theory that rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide should now be seen as enhanced growth of high-elevation trees in general. Long-term tree-ring chronology of spruce indicates surge of growth from late 1820s to mid-1830s, with lasting effects on plant community structure.
