Climate impacts on bird and plant communities from altered animal–plant interactions

Martin, Thomas E.; Maron, John L.

A long-term field study establishes a link between reduced snowfall and bird and tree declines in montane Arizona. Excluding elk from experimental sites reversed these declines and also lowered nest predation. This experiment shows that climate change, operating through increased winter herbivory, can negatively affect diverse species occupying such ecosystems.
