Abstract

The future of treeline in Glacier National Park is discussed and shown to be one of change. This change has not occurred in a vacuum separate from other natural processes but rather is one of several forms of change documenting the effects of climate change in the Park. The treeline of the future will look substantially different than that currently observed in our study area.
