Record #186641:

Topographic complexity and terrestrial biotic response to high-latitude climate change: variance is as important as the mean / W. Scott Armbruster.

Title: Topographic complexity and terrestrial biotic response to high-latitude climate change: variance is as important as the mean / W. Scott Armbruster.
Author(s): Armbruster, W. Scott.
Date: 2007.
Publisher: Berlin: Springer
In: Arctic alpine ecosystems and people in a changing environment. (2007.),
Abstract: Discusses existence of mosaic of radiation budgets and microclimates in rough landscapes, and effect of microclimatic variation on local community composition of both plants and animals. Finds nearly 100% species replacement occurring between north-facing and south-facing slopes, which suggests main biological response to future climate change may occur by species replacement through shifts in local distribution, rather than by phenotypic plasticity or ecotypic differentiation within taxa.
