The arctic is a sensitive system undergoing dramatic changes related to recent warming trends. Vegetation dynamics - increases in the quantity of green vegetation and a northward migration of trees into the arctic tundra - are a component of this change. Although field studies over long time periods can be logistically problematic, simulation modeling provides a means for projecting changes in arctic and subarctic vegetation caused by environmental variations.
