Ecological implications of disturbance regime change in
Rocky Mountain subalpine forests

Patterns of wildfire, insect outbreak, and severe weather in the Rocky Mountains have been altered by a warming climate, and those patterns are in turn influencing basic ecological processes in novel ways. We used repeated field surveys, seed trapping, and spatial analysis in subalpine forests of Colorado and Wyoming to understand how increased overlap between multiple fires, beetle outbreaks and wind blowdowns have modulated seed dispersal and the composition and density of forest regeneration.
