e! Science News Many climate change forecasts assume that temperature is the dominant driver of species distributions. A new study reveals that other factors such as precipitation may be more important in defining the habitable range of species. The findings could have global relevance.
The Mountain Research Initiative (MRI) is a multidisciplinary scientific organization that addresses global change issues in mountain regions around the world. MRI promotes and supports:
