The european dimension of the global observation research initiative in alpine environments - a contribution to gtos (GLORIA-EUROPE)


The project is proposed to establish an urgently required international network of long-term observation settings to detect climate change-induced effects on alpine mountain ecosystems (i.e. from the tree line upwards). Alpine environments are particularly appropriate for such a network, due to their presence in all major life zones of Europe and due to their high vulnerability and sensitivity to climatic changes. The project aims to implement a particularly cost-effective in site observation of plant biodiversity and vegetation patterns at 72 sites in 18 Target Regions. This includes the development, evaluation and application of standardised observation tools and the assessment of cost-effective options for the long-term operation.
