Resilience in SENSitive mountain FORest ecosystems under environmental change
Editors: Nils C. Stenseth, Frans E. Wielgolaski

This CR Special focuses on the impacts of climate and land use changes in treelines of several European mountain areas. Treelines, transition zones between the low elevation subalpine forests and the higher elevation low-alpine treeless ecosystems, are important and sensitive indicators of environmental changes. The SENSitive mountain FORest (SENSFOR) COST Action project focuses on the analysis and comparison of biological and socioecological data from European mountain areas, and also presents case studies from various European regions. The main aims of the SENSFOR treeline project are:

• To improve the potential for sustainable governance of sensitive treeline ecosystems and related ecosystem services
• To build capacity for local and regional stakeholders to cope with future climate and land use changes

The project is supported by the COST Action of the EU in which 22 EU countries and one ‘neighbor country’ cooperate.
