Lisa Brancaleoni and Renato Gerdol Habitat-dependent interactive effects of a heatwave and experimental fertilization on the vegetation of an alpine mire Journal of Vegetation Science
The 2003 heat wave triggered a short-term expansion of vascular plants in an alpine mire. The after-effects of the heat wave interacted with experimental fertilization and differed between habitats. In hummocks, the cover of the moss layer increased because Sphagnum mosses recovered and non-Sphagnum mosses expanded, especially under N addition. In lawns, vascular plants further expanded while mosses did not recover.
