About this book

Climate Change Impacts on High-Altitude Ecosystems covers studies on the systematics of plant taxa and will include general vegetational aspects and ecological characteristics of plant life at altitudes above 1 000 m. from different parts of the world. Climate Change Impacts on High-Altitude Ecosystems also addresses how upcoming climate change scenarios will impact high altitude plant life. It presents case studies from the most important mountainous areas like the Himalayas, Caucasus and South America covering the countries like Malaysia, Sri Lanka, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Kirghizia, Georgia, Russia,Turkey, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Americas. Climate Change Impacts on High-Altitude Ecosystems will serve as an invaluable resource source undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers.
