Due to a global increase in climatically-driven disturbances, it is becoming increasingly likely that ecosystems may be affected by multiple types of disturbance in short succession. We found that subalpine forest regeneration following compounded versus single disturbances varies in density and composition, which may contribute to an increased complexity of potential post-disturbance stand trajectories and/or lead to alternate stable states.
