Abstract

The aim of this paper is to test the carbon balance hypothesis for treeline locations in Glacier National Park (GNP), Montana. The AA. hypothesize that treeline locations not controlled by disturbance are controlled by carbon balance. To test their hypothesis, they simulate tree carbon balances through the latter half of the 20th century along elevational transects using a physiologically mechanistic forest process model (ATE-BGC) that has been designed for use at alpine treeline locations
