Poster #167: Emilia Lewis – Range Expansion of Pinus edulis (Colorado pinyon): Early Colonization of the Northernmost North American Population, Crawford Mountains, Utah

Faculty mentor: Larry Coats

Colorado pinyon pine have a documented history of migration in the face of climatic changes. Detection of the migration of plants in response to climatic changes has largely depended upon the analysis of the contents of packrat middens. The existing population in the Crawford Mountains is on the extreme northernmost edge of their distribution. This population provides a unique opportunity to understand the age of this far-flung population, and the interaction between the species and climate.
