Changes in forest structure drive temperature preferences of boreal understory plant communities

Ditte Marie Christiansen, Lars Lønsmann Iversen, Johan Ehrlén & Kristoffer Hylander
1. The local climate in forest understories can deviate substantially from ambient conditions. Moreover, forest microclimates are often characterized by cyclic changes driven by management activities such as clear-cutting and subsequent planting. To understand how and why understory plant communities change, both ambient climate change and temporal variation in forest structure has to be considered. 2. We used inventories from 11436 productive forest sites in Sweden repeated every 10th year 1993 - 2017 to examine...
