Nordic mountain birch ecosystems
This volume presents the results of an extensive, long-running program of research on mountain birch, Betula pubescens ssp. czerepanovii, conducted by the Nordic Subarctic and Subalpine Ecology (NSSE) group, as part of the UNESCO/MAB Northern Sciences Network. The book contains an almost complete overview of NSSE research and results, presented in 31 data-rich chapters in six sections: introduction, ecosystem distribution, plant growth, animal herbivory, impact by man, and conclusions. These chapters cover the history, climatic influences and interactions of animals and insects on the growth and distribution of mountain birch, considering both physical and chemical aspects of performance and distribution, and using research methods ranging from plant and animal ecophysiology to social anthropology and remote sensing.
