Long-term treeline research dataset at Stillberg, Davos

Peter Bebi
BackgroundA history of many centuries of seasonal livestock grazing of alpine pastures has significantly depressed the treeline in many European mountain ranges. Therefore, observations of treeline patterns are more likely to be obscured by historical land use than in regions with less human influence and might not provide relevant information about environmental factors that influence mortality and growth patterns at the natural high-elevation limit of tree existence. To overcome this, we used a large afforestation...
