Assessment of climate change effects on mountain ecosystems through a cross-site analysis in the Alps and Apennines
Mountain ecosystems are sensitive and reliable indicators of climate change. Long-term studies may be extremely useful in assessing the responses of high-elevation ecosystems to climate change and other anthropogenic drivers ...
Aquatic invertebrates along the progression of glacial and non-glacial streams in Matsch Valley (South Tyrol, Italy)
Amongst other ecosystems threatened by climate change effects, living conditions in alpine streams in glaciated basins experience considerable changes as glaciers retreat, leading to changing structures of invertebrate ...
Effects of changing climate on european stream invertebrate communities: a long-term data analysis
Long-term observations on riverine benthic invertebrate communities enable assessments of the potential impacts of global change on stream ecosystems. Besides increasing average temperatures, many studies predict greater ...
Spatial and temporal variation of benthic macroinvertebrate assemblages during the glacial melt season in an Italian glacier-fed stream
The biodiversity of glacier-fed streams is particularly threatened by climate change, emphasising the need of monitoring these sentinel systems. The glacier-fed Saldur stream is an International Long Term Ecological Research ...
