Landscape mosaic in the treeline ecotone on Mt Rodjanoaivi, Subarctic Finland


The aim of this paper is to differentiate the landscape mosaic in the treeline ecotone using topography-dependent landscape spatial-ecological units (site types) identified by vegetation, soils and natural drainage classes and to assess the influence of the landscape mosaic on natural regeneration of the mountain birch. This is demonstrated with examples on the northwest-exposed slope of Rodjanoaivi. Consequently, the landscape mosaic needs to be carefully considered when discussing the possible effects of the changing climate in the treeline ecotone
