1. picture:
In Summer 2011, I conducted fieldwork at 72.4° N to study the stand structure of Larix gmelinii. As the summer sun shines all day long, there was plenty of time for work.

2. picture:
The treeline near the Taimyr peninsula is formed by Larix gmelinii and spans over a wide ecotone from closed forest to the species line. In the course of climate change, it is expected to expand further north, leading to positive feedback between climate and vegetation.
