Lodgepole Pine Ecosystems


The study of water and nutrient fluxes through ecosystems provides many opportunities for learning about the biology of organisms and acquiring information relevant to land management. In this paper we present some results for the lodgepole pine {Pinus contorta ssp. latifolia [Engelm. ex Wats.] Critchfield) forest ecosystem, a relatively simple but widely distributed forest type in western North America. Our results from Wyoming add to the growing body of literature that illustrates how biotic processes play a key role in regulating various aspects of ecosystem structure and function.
