Short summary
It is shown that inter-annual variations in the primary productivity of mountain grasslands are primarily governed by variations in the length of the snow-free period and to a much lesser extent by temperature and precipitation during the growing season. Meteorological variables controlling snow cover dynamics are thus of paramount importance to understand and model the amount and timing of biomass production in mountain pastures.
It is shown that inter-annual variations in the primary productivity of mountain grasslands are...
