Abstract

The AA. examined the importance of periglacial shelter in the spatial distribution of conifers at and above alpine treeline. Using a detailed field-based method, the AA. sampled a total of 211 conifer patches at 3 study locations in Glacier National Park (GNP). Conifers were found to be nonrandom spatial associates of 3 shelter types : boulders, terrace risers and combination shelters. The results indicate that conifer establishment and survival in this extreme mountain environment is connected to shelter availability and shelter type
