Climate Change taking toll on Pacific Northwest’s Meadows

Climate change seems to be taking toll. Whether it's the unpredictable weather in America or declining ice in Antarctica, climate change is creating havoc on the Earth.

Recently, a study was being carried out, which has revealed that certain high mountain meadows have been declining in Pacific Northwest and credit for the same goes to climate change. A number of other factors have been disrupting the unique ecosystems.

Some of the many factors are that snow packs have reduced. Moreover, growth seasons have increased, which has been disputing the environment. Experts were of the view that process is not new and have been taking place in the region for last many years.

It was due to an analysis that took place on Jefferson Park that the matter got highlighted. The research, which has unveiled the above stated factor, was being funded by the Pacific Northwest Research Station. Moreover, the study has been published in the journal Landscape Ecology. It is being expected that changes will take as a matter of concern and measures will be taken to solve the problem.

"The first awareness of declining meadows dates back to the 1970s, and we've seen meadow reduction at both high and low elevations", said Harold Zald from Oregon State University.
