MOUNTAIN FUTURES

ECOSYSTEM RHYTHMS: UNDERSTANDING CHANGE

Due to elevation gradients, mountain ecosystems are governed by unique ecological rhythms; we need to update our scientific understanding of how these ecological cycles are affected by climate change and other global processes. Events in this theme will examine how researchers and mountain communities can together collect such data and combine it with indigenous knowledge systems in ways that support resilient mountain livelihoods.
