Justin Olnes sat down with me to discuss his recent research into boreal forest ecology. Justin’s primary focus was on herbivores (specifically snowshoe hares) impact on floodplain and treeline ecosystems. We discuss snowshoe hares, herbivore/vegetation dynamics, Justin’s concept of the snowshoe hare filter and more.


Justin’s published papers:

Stage?dependent effects of browsing by snowshoe hares on successional dynamics in a boreal forest ecosystem

Asynchronous recruitment dynamics of snowshoe hares and white spruce in a boreal forest

Can snowshoe hares control treeline expansions?
