Also, the exceptions to the recent trend of increasing treeline altitudes has been related to such features as grazing, soil erosion, and the associated lag in regeneration time of a formerly occupied treeline ecotone

As supporters of the environmental movement, Ecotone
will donate a minimum of 10 percent of its profits to environmental and social organizations, and will publish all books on recycled-content paper.
By implementing our 'less is more' approach to stream restoration we reduced project costs, minimized our carbon footprint, and kept heavy equipment off local roadways," said Scott McGill, founder and CEO of Ecotone
Johnson has observed that, in some areas, the alpine treeline ecotone
is moving up in elevation.

This new locality extends the geographic distribution of the species about 310 km to the east and represents the easternmost limit for the species range, in a Cerrado-Caatinga-Atlantic Forest ecotone
The sedimentary caatinga environment had the largest number of surveys in our dataset, with 18 sites, followed by the crystalline caatinga (12 sites), inselberg communities (10), arboreal caatinga (9), riverine forest (8), caatinga in the agreste ecotone
(6), the transition between crystalline and sedimentary sites (6), the caatinga in the Chapada Diamantina highlands (3) and the caatinga in the campo maior ecotone

As climate warms, abiotic factors, as well as plant community and biodiversity structure, may constrain or promote the movement of ecotone

This review focuses on a brief presentation of the hyporheic zone and its functions and significance as an ecotone
