Canopy gaps facilitate upslope shifts in montane conifers but not in temperate deciduous trees in the Northeastern United States

Jordon Tourville, Jay Wason & Martin Dovciak
Many montane tree species are expected to migrate upslope as climate warms, but it is not clear if forest canopy gaps, which can facilitate tree seedling recruitment, serve as an important mechanism driving tree species range shifts. Patterns of tree seedling establishment can inform us about early stages of tree species migrations and are critical to examine in the context of global climate change. We contrasted elevational distributions of tree seedlings both within and outside...
