Shifts in plant communities are one of the major responses of terrestrial ecosystems to climate change. In Arctic and Subarctic regions, recent climate change has resulted in an overall increase in shrub cover and, to a lesser extent, to treeline advance.

In this seminar, Professor Boudreau will present his research on the impacts of climate change on the dynamics of plant communities of the Forest-Tundra ecotone in subarctic Québec (eastern Canada).
