Earlier spring snowmelt drives arrowleaf balsamroot phenology in montane meadows

Janice S. Durney, Arden Engel, Diane Debinski & Laura Burkle
Climate change is causing global shifts in phenology, altering when and how species respond to environmental cues such as temperature and the timing of snowmelt. These shifts may result in phenological mismatches among interacting species, creating cascading effects on community and ecosystem dynamics. Using passive warming structures and snow removal, we examined how experimentally increased temperatures, earlier spring snowmelt, and the poorly understood interaction between warming and earlier spring snowmelt affected flower onset, flowering duration,...
