Current climate change has enabled many organisms to expand their range to higher altitudes and latitudes. While the movement of organisms like plants is relatively well recorded, much less is known how such process influences the interactions between plants and their biotic environment. I will show what we've learned about the interactions between range expanding plants, native plants, soil organisms and insects.
