Final Report - PYRTREELINEMOD (A model for Pyrenean treeline: from individuals to landscapes under a changing climate)

Project ID: 220631
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE


This is the final activity report of the PYRTREELINEMOD project, which was funded under the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The project aimed to improve the understanding of tree line dynamics and to apply this insight to predict its future evolution, with a main focus on the Pyrenean range. The document firstly provides an overview of the project background and then summarises its principal objectives. In addition, the implemented methodology and the development and evaluation of an Individual based model (IBM) are analysed. The results of the numerous simulations are also reviewed. In addition, the report refers to the near future distribution of Pyrenean tree lines at wider scales and closes with the predicted changes in individual tree growth.
