Summary

The boundary between forest and tundra in mountainous areas, alpine treeline, is expected to advance as climate warming continues and change is likely to be pronounced in northern latitudes. I studied the white spruce ( Picea glauca (Moench) Voss) treeline in the Kluane region of southwest Yukon, Canada, with the objectives of: (i) characterizing its responses to past climate change, and (ii) assessing the influence of different environmental variables on spruce growth and treeline dynamics. Four investigations were conducted, each employing fundamentally different methodologies and occupying distinct levels within a hierarchical, scale-based, analytical framework. At the landscape scale, I mapped spruce distribution and abundance [...]
