    Description

    In this overview, I present extensive studies looking at the structure and function of the black spruce (Picea mariana) ecosystem of the boreal region of interior Alaska. One of the studies provides a classification of black spruce communities, the most abundant forest type in the region. Other studies examine large-scale processes that drive this community classification. This work helps lay the foundation for an appropriate vegetation mapping project in boreal Alaska.
