• Determinants of tree seedling establishment in alpine tundra 

      Nystuen, Kristin Odden; Opedal, Øystein Hjorthol; Foest, Jessie J; Sørensen, Mia Vedel; De Frenne, Pieter; Graae, Bente Jessen; Limpens, Juul (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Questions Changes in climate and herbivory pressure affect northern alpine ecosystems through woody plant encroachment, altering their composition, structure and functioning. The encroachment often occurs at unequal rates ...
    • Experimental herbivore exclusion, shrub introduction, and carbon sequestration in alpine plant communities 

      Sørensen, Mia Vedel; Graae, Bente Jessen; Hagen, Dagmar; Enquist, Brian J.; Nystuen, Kristin Odden; Strimbeck, Richard (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Shrub cover in arctic and alpine ecosystems has increased in recent decades, and is predicted to further increase with climate change. Changes in shrub abundance may alter ecosystem carbon (C) sequestration and storage, ...
