Snow modulates winter energy use and cold exposure across an elevation gradient in a montane ectothermKevin Roberts, Nathan Rank, Elizabeth Dahlhoff, Jonathon Stillman & Caroline Williams
Snow insulates the soil from air temperature, decreasing winter cold stress and altering energy use for organisms that overwinter in the soil. As climate change alters snowpack and air temperatures, it is critical to account for the role of snow in modulating vulnerability to winter climate change. Along elevational gradients in snowy mountains, snow cover increases but air temperature decreases, and it is unknown how these opposing gradients impact performance and fitness of organisms overwintering...
