Abstract: Ecosystems today are under increasing pressure from a rapidly changing climate, changes in land-use, habitat fragmentation and degradation and increasing anthropogenic disturbance. Studying drivers of biodiversity patterns is of increasing importance for understanding the dynamics of communities and their reactions and adaptation to changes in the future. Climate change is predicted to be most dramatic in mountainous areas, influencing shifts in vegetation patterns, which have already been obs... more
