Abstract

The AA. discuss Körner's five hypotheses and explain how animal activity can be included within them to make them more applicable to treeline environments experiencing a changing climate. The AA. utilize the conceptual model proposed by Cairns and Moen (2004) as an organizing framework for the inclusion of animal activity with existing hypotheses. Finally they suggest that the equivocal nature of treeline response to climate change may be in part related to animal activity
