17:00-18:00 | Arctic and Alpine ecosystems in face of climate change
Arctic regions and mountain areas are both experiencing significant amplification of climate change, with temperature rise which can be more than twice the global mean.
This exacerbated warming causes important effects on these environments, including glacier retreat and permafrost thaw, changes in the water cycle, modifications in ecosystems functions and biodiversity. Species loss and displacement, changes in phenology and community composition, and episodes of ecosystem mismatch are already happening and foreseen to be potentially amplified in the future. In this round table, we gather experts on different aspects of Arctic and Alpine ecosystems, discussing what is known, what can be expected, and how to cope with such changes.
