Arctic & Oroarctic vegetation patterns in northern Europe as a consequence of topography, climate, bedrock conditions and grazing / Risto Virtanen.

Title: Arctic & Oroarctic vegetation patterns in northern Europe as a consequence of topography, climate, bedrock conditions and grazing / Risto Virtanen.
Author(s): Virtanen, Risto.
Date: 1996.
Publisher: Oulu, Finland: Oulu University Press
Abstract: Vegetation patterns of European Arctic islands and middle oroarctic zone of north-western Fennoscandia are described, based on collected data. Active investigation included transplanting, neighbour removal and fencing. Conclusions are drawn on convergence on graze-free Arctic islands and diversity maintained by grazing on mainland. Component papers are: Middle-northern (oro)arctic vegetation of northern Europe: community types and vegetation gradients; topographic and altitudinal patterns in plant communities on European Arctic islands; plant community structure on Arctic islands: absence of herbivores favours moss dominance; lemming grazing and structure of snowbed plant community: a long-term experiment at Kilpisjärvi; impact of grazing and neighbour removal on mountain heath vegetation transplanted onto a snowbed site, NW Finnish Lapland.
