G-TREE researchers are packing up their gear and heading out to arctic and alpine field sites around the world. It has been a very late spring in many parts of the northern hemisphere, which means a slow start for many field research projects, particularly at treeline. From G-TREE participant and PhD candidate Hannah Loranger working in the French Alps, we hear that they are "digging entry ways towards [snow] blocked doors to access ... material and doing mostly indoor preparations"! So goes ecology at range margins.
We are very excited to have researchers in the field, like Hannah, contributing to this blog throughout the season. Check back regularly for updates from the field!
