Title: Retreating or standing: Responses of forest species and steppe species to climate change in arid eastern central Asia

Author: Zhang, Hong-Xiang; Zhang, Ming-Li; Sanderson, Stewart C.;

Date: 2013

Source: PLoS ONE 8(4): e61954.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: The temperature in arid Eastern Central Asia is projected to increase in the future, accompanied by increased variability of precipitation. To investigate the impacts of climate change on plant species in this area, we selected two widespread species as candidates, Clematis sibirica and C. songorica, from montane coniferous forest and arid steppe habitats respectively.

Keywords: forest species, steppe species, climate change, Clematis sibirica, Clematis songorica
