Results of the Workshop on Global Change Research in Mountainous Regions

A workshop on the global (climate) change and its impact on mountainous regions was held at the University of California Berkeley/US on 14 December 2008.
The research summaries from the workshop organised by the Mountain Research Initiative (MRI) are now available. Concentrated on a few pages is a wealth of information on global climate research. The researchers looked at the different mountain regions of the world, with climate change as the focal point of their work. While it is a well-known fact that glaciologists are involved in particularly intensive research work, other eco-systems such as mountain forests are also affected. Climate change is also impacting the usability of cultivated land and consequently the social fabric, too.
