Largest Rises of Swedish Treelines, Consistent with Climate Change Since the Early-20th Century

Repeat in situ measurements were taken at 14 places across the Swedish Scandes, spanning 800 kilometres from south to north, to estimate treeline advance during the last 100 years. Mountain birch (Betula pubescens ssp. czerepanovii), Norway spruce (Picea abies), Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris), and rowan were among the threatened species (Sorbus aucuparia). The highest height…

Recently Enhanced Pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) Regeneration and Extensive Penetration towards the Head of the Handölan Valley: Reversal of a Long-Term Retrogressional Trend – Contrasting Responses to Climate Change of Tree- and Forest Line

With an emphasis on climate change, this study examines the latest history and output of widely spaced pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) tree- and forest lines in a mountain valley in the southern Swedish Scandes. Over the last two decades, the treeline ecotone’s geriatric structure and physiognomy have been significantly rejuvenated. By the early twentieth century…
