    Sammanfattning : The mountain birch ecosystem forms the northern treeline in subarctic Europe. Since the treeline isextremely sensitive to temperature, stress in mountain birch can be used as an indicator of stress onthe ecosystem as a whole, and in predictions of how climate change factors will influence thesubalpine-tundra ecotone and treeline dynamics.
