Title: A micro-scale perspective on alpine floras under climate change
Project leader: Stefan Dullinger (University of Vienna, Austria)
Funding: European research Council (ERC)
Description: In a warming climate the biota of the coldest places on Earth appear particularly threatened. Microclim explores the case of European high-mountains floras and evaluates to which extent microclimatic variation at high elevations may buffer their species against a warming macroclimate.
