Abstract:
The project uses a novel approach to study changes in the altitudinal distribution of the high mountain flora of the Alps during the last ~ 100 years. Instead of re-visiting exactly localised plots or transects we re-sample regional vegetation monographs and use novel analytical techniques to test a couple of hypotheses about recent range dynamics, the traits associated with particular responses to climate, the relationship between rear- and leading edge shifts, and the emergence of dispersal limited distribution patterns and extinction debt.
