Abstract:
A theoretical method is described for detecting and estimating the rate of tree— and shrub—species migration based upon measurements of maximum and minimum age along a transect. Age data from Mt. Washington indicate that the method does detect migration trends under field conditions, although appreciable variation is encountered.
