Widespread shifts in the demographic structure of subalpine forests in the Sierra Nevada, California, 1934 to 2007 [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
Aim  Many climate-linked vegetation models predict major contraction of subalpine forests within the next 100 years, which would require a relatively rapid replacement of high-elevation species by lower-elevation species over large portions of subalpine forest. We tested this prediction by comparing empirical data from a historic data set with data collected from re-sampled sites from 2007–09.
