Lara, M.J., H. Genet, A.D. McGuire, E.S. Euskirchen, Y. Zhang, D. Brown, M.T. Jorgenson, V. Romanovsky, A. Breen, W.R. Bolton 2016. Thermokarst rates intensify due to climate change and forest fragmentation in an Alaskan boreal forest lowland. Global Change Biology. doi: 10.1111/gcb.13124.
Lara, M.J., H. Genet, A.D. McGuire, E.S. Euskirchen, Y. Zhang, D.R.N. Brown, M.T. Jorgenson, V. Romanovsky, A. Breen, and W.R. Bolton 2016. Lowland boreal forest ecosystems in Alaska are dominated by wetlands comprised of a complex mosaic of fens, collapse-scar bogs, low shrub/scrub, and forests growing on elevated ice-rich permafrost soils. Thermokarst has affected the lowlands of the Tanana. Global Change Biology. 22(2). 816-829. doi:10.1111/gcb.13124.
