Abstract
One of the Southern distribution limits of the Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) is located in the Sistema Central Range of Spain, where this tree species is present above 2000 m.a.s.l. The pine treeline is in contact with high mountain grassland and shrubland areas, de?ning a Mediterranean forest ecotone. Because ecotone areas are mainly climatically driven, one of these areas has been chosen for detecting ecosystem consequences of a treeline expansion into the grassland-shrubland areas. A conversion from grasslands to Scots pine forests may provoke variations in physical, chemical and biological soil properties and therefore changes in soil organic carbon (SOC) stocks.
