We are researching spruce forests at treeline in Alaska. During the 1998 field season, we visited 3 major areas of the state, shown with green arrows. See below for details.

Three major study areas for 1998

  • In the Interior of Alaska, we visited the White Mountains (off the Steese Highway). Sites included Nome Creek and Idaho Creek.
  • Also in the interior, we visited the Alaska Range along the Denali Highway. Sites included Monahan Flats, Canyon Creek, and Wrangel View.
  • Finally, we visited the Seward Peninsula near Council, where we will spend the 1999 field season.
