European High Mountain (Alpine) Vegetation and its Suitability for Indicating Climate Change Impacts
Biology and Environment (Dublin)
High mountain (alpine) vegetation in Europe occurs above the climatic treeline or substitute vegetation from north of the Arctic Circle to the Mediterranean. As bearing the least modified ecosystems, high mountains offer an opportunity to use their plant and animal species for studying climate change impacts. However, the indicator value of the different vegetation types varies. Treelines, often used in reconstructing past climate by palaeo-scientists, are, in most cases, suppressed by past ordoi:10.3318/bioe.2006.106.3.335 fatcat:6afxilzee5gh3juylfdkwhm64q
