We conducted a 49-yr re-survey of plant communities in California's White Mountains. We found that sagebrush increased in abundance at the upper elevations of its distribution while there were significant declines in abundances at the lower elevation ranges of three alpine cushion plants. These shifts occurred during a period when temperatures increased and precipitation declined at this location.
