Ecology, Patchiness, and Dynamics. Authors: Holtmeier, Friedrich-Karl.

Ecology, Patchiness, and Dynamics. The upper timberline is the most conspicuous vegetation limit in high-mountain areas of all continents and islands, except for the Antarctic.

Ecology, patchiness and dynamics. Friedrich-Karl Holtmeier Friedrich-Karl Holtmeier. Friedrich-Karl Holtmeier. Change in the timberline ecotone is described by comparing field notes and observations in study areas in northern Utsjoki and Pallastunturi from 30 years ago to the present situation. This book is motivated by studies of global climate change and its impact on the environment, a topic which is increasingly being discussed among scientists as well as by the general public. One major point of concern is the possible shift of vegetation zones to higher altitudes and greater latitudes.

Friedrich-Karl Holtmeier. Timberline is a worldwide and very heterogeneous phenomenon, which can only be presented by way of examples. My own field experience is necessarily limited to certain timberline areas, such as the Alps, northern Scandinavia, northern Finland and many high mountain ranges in the western United States and Canada.

For more than 40 years I have been engaged in timberline research. Thus, one could suppose that writing this book should not have been too difficult. It was harder, however, than expected, and in the end I felt that more questions had arisen than could be answered within its pages. Perhaps it would have been easier to write the book 30 years ago and then leave the subject to mature. Lastly it was the late Prof. Heinz Ellenberg who had convinced me to portray a much needed and complete picture of what we know of the timberline with special respect to its great physiognomic, structural and ecological variety. The first version of this book was p- lished in the German language (Holtmeier, 2000). Nevertheless, I was very delighted when Prof. Martin Beniston encouraged me to prepare an English edition for the series ‘Advances in Global Change Research’, which guaranteed a wider circulation. Timberline is a worldwide and very heterogeneous phenomenon, which can only be presented by way of examples. My own field experience is necessarily limited to certain timberline areas, such as the Alps, northern Scandinavia, northern Finland and many high mountain ranges in the western United States and Canada. However, my own observations and the results of my and my previous collaborators research were essential for developing the concept of the book and became integrated into the picture of timberline that is presented in the following chapters.
