Bayreuth case study: Decades of climate change in the mountains do not cause a shift in the tree line

Bayreuth case study: Decades of climate change in the mountains do not cause a shift in the tree line

05.08.2022

Living conditions for forests at high elevations have changed significantly in recent decades as a result of climate change. In many mountain regions, they have become more favorable above the tree line than in lower-lying forested areas. Nevertheless, climate change has not yet led to forests adapting directly to this change and shifting to higher regions. This is confirmed by a new biogeographical study (M. Beloiu et al.) of the Deapartment of Biogeography using the example of the Mediterranean island of Crete. The scientists present their research results in the journal "Forest Ecosystems" and warn of the possible consequences.
