Caption
The Global Observation Research Initiative in Alpine Environments (GLORIA) at Mount Schrankogl, Austria. They are laying out one meter quadrats to see the change from 10 years ago which was documented by photographs. The researchers have shown that grasses move upslope and many native wildflowers which only grow on the summits are threatened with extinction.: This expert at work is documenting changes to grass and flower growth on mountain summits. The photo adds a human face to climate research, and tells a new story
