Study of changes in tree species distribution across altitudinal gradient in context of current climate change and ontogenetic tree species development

Name: Study of changes in tree species distribution across altitudinal gradient in context of current climate change and ontogenetic tree species development
Researchers: Kopecký Martin (member of research team)
Project Type: C - other (Research and development projects of ministries, contracts and agreements on targeted research and cooperation, etc.)
Realization from: 2012
Realization to: 2013
Summary: Species distribution shifts upward are reported mainly from non-forest mounain communities but from forests there are less and no clear findings. Forest tree distribution is continuously influenced by their onthogenetic development, which is neglected in published studies. Comparing distribution parameters in various onthogenetic stages within two different climatic periods we will analyse changes in distribution of selected forest trees (particularly the beech - Fagus sylvatica L.) in context of recent climatic changes and onthogenetic stage.
