Phenotypic plasticity and water availability: responses of alpine herb species along an elevation gradient

Geange, Sonya; Briceno, Veronica F.; Aitken, Niccy; Ramirez-Valient, Jose A.; Holloway-Phillips, Meisha-Marika; Nicotra, Adrienne


Background Alpine regions are particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. The Australian Alps are potentially more so than other mountain regions, as they cover a very small geographic area (<0.05% of mainland Australia), with a low maximum elevation (2228 m). Therefore, response to climate change will be primarily determined by the ability of species to survive in-situ through local adaptation or phenotypic plasticity. Existing climate change models project not only warming but...[Show more]
