GLOBAL OBSERVATION RESEARCH INITIATIVE IN ALPINE ENVIRONMENTS

The GLORIA Master Site Schrankogel, Stubaier Alpen, Tyrol, Austria


Species richness is in the present situation highest at the alpine-nival ecotone itself. With increasing temperature, this pattern will disintegrate. With 1°C warming (level 3), biodiversity will shrink remarkably, getting "trapped" in specific terrain situations (level 4). Low (cyan), moderate (yellow), high (magenta) species richness.
