Title: Dynamics of change in Alaska's boreal forests: resilience and vulnerability in response to climate warming

Author: McGuire, A. David; Chapin, F.S. III; Ruess, R.W.;

Date: 2010

Source: Canadian Journal of Forest Research. 40(7): 1195-1196

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Long-term research by the Bonanza Creek (BNZ) Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) program has documented natural patterns of interannual and successional variability of the boreal forest in interior Alaska against which we can detect changes in system behavior. Between 2004 and 2010 the BNZ LTER program focused on understanding the dynamics of change through studying the resilience and vulnerability of Alaska's boreal forest in response to climate warming. The overarching question in this endeavor has been “How are boreal ecosystems responding, both gradually and abruptly, to climate warming, and what new landscape patterns are emerging?”

Keywords: LTER, long-term research, boreal ecosystems, resilience, climate warming
