Outbreaks by canopy-feeding geometrid moth cause state-dependent shifts in understorey plant communities
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013)
The increased spread of insect outbreaks is among the most severe impacts of climate warming predicted for northern boreal forest ecosystems. Compound disturbances by insect herbivores can cause sharp transitions between vegetation states with implications for ecosystem productivity and climate feedbacks. By analysing vegetation plots prior to and immediately after a severe and widespread ...
