Elevation-dependent climate changes in mountain regions

Project Type: 
Core Research Project
Project Leader: 
Status: 
Ongoing
Science Themes: 

Mountain regions constrain ecological responses to climate change.  Understanding how future changes in climate will evolve has important implications for ecosystems, hydrology and downstream environments.
