Abstract

The environment in alpine regions has been monitored since around 1880 in order to record glacier variations over time and to understand mechanisms leading to change. In the 1990s the authors reinvestigated old records (1835 to 1953) on the dynamics of flora on summits in the Alps and found that vascular plants had migrated upslope, likely due to global warming. GLORIA was started to provide more knowledge about ecosystem responses to environmental change. Website is www.pph.univie.ac.at/gloria/gloria. - (SLD)
