Methods

Vegetation 1. We counted number of generative shoots on permanent plots every year in the beginning of August. 2. Number of generative shoots per plot 3. Plot size: 1 m2 4. Approx subsite area: alpine lichen heath (all shoots) - 40 m2 5. List missing taxa and year missing. Soil temperature, PAR and solar radiation are missing 6. Description of warming treatment if applicable - no treatment
