Abstract

Climate change has important effects on the dynamics of subarctic ecosystems since it generally results in better growing conditions for plant species. Such an improvement could have repercussions on the performance of woody species and lead to the densification or advance of shrub and tree stands, which would increase in the complexity of the vertical structure of these ecosystems. The objective of this study is to characterize biomass, growth and the evolution of the plant structure of plant communities in Nunavik (Quebec). To do so, we characterized and sampled of three stations covering a latitudinal gradient extending from the spruce-lichen forest to the shrub tundra during the summers of 2018 and 2019. Vegetation surveys were carried out to quantify the shrub layer and samples of Betula glandulosa were collected to perform dendrochronological analyses. Our results show that shrub cover characteristics are more a function of the plant formation sampled than of the position along the latitudinal gradient, suggesting that biotic (competition) and abiotic (topography, wind exposures) factors have a strong influence on the dynamics of the shrub layer. Our results also show that the vertical growth rate of B. glandulosa tends to decrease from south to north along the gradient. Finally, we also demonstrated that the radial growth of this species mainly responds on summer temperature and early winter precipitation. However, individuals in the northern portion of the gradient have a higher climate sensitivity than those in the southern portion. Our results show that the development of the vertical structure of the shrub layer will be slower in the shrub tundra bioclimatic zone, even if the performance of the dominant shrub species has an increased climatic sensitivity in this zone.
