Responses of ecosystem properties to elevation in contrasting mountain systems

EU – BiodivERsa

This project aims to determine if there are consistent trends in ecosystem properties, especially measures of the relative availability of N and P, as elevation increases both below and above treelines, and across the tree-line transition zone. As part of a global experiment, this is being tested using a series of replicated transects that span montane treelines on multiple continents. The project is led by David Wardle with collaborators Aimee Classen, Nate Sanders, Sandra Lavorel, and Maja Sundqvist, among others. For more details, see: Dr Jordan R Mayor.
