Potential impacts of climate change on species richness in mountain forests - an ecological risk assessment

Potential impacts of climate change on species richness in mountain forests - an ecological risk assessment

Biological Conservation 83.3

This ecological risk assessment evaluated potential climate-induced vegetation changes in mountain forests of Central Europe and possible impacts on species richness. The analysis was performed on all 1 km grid points of the Swiss forest inventory (~ 11 500 points) as well as on two subsets representing the forested points within the geographical limits of two inventories of legally protected reserve areas.
