Abstract:

The interactive effects of climate variables and tree–tree competition are important but still insufficiently understood drivers of forest response to global climate change. I will speak about the results of a few studies which have explored this topic including a recent study conducted in young deciduous forests exposed to elevated air humidity in the FAHM experiment.

 

NB. This is the last EcolChange seminar on this calendar year.
