Abstract: Climate change impacts on vegetation cover, composition, and productivity have been documented from field and satellite remote sensing studies for boreal forest regions such as interior Alaska, where temperature changes over the last three decades are significantly higher than in other terrestrial biomes. However, vegetation response to recent warm ... [more]
