Climate Change Sloping Up Plants

Climate Change Sloping Up Plants

A research has been taken out by a group of researchers from University of Arizona on effects of climate change.

It has been found that climate change had led to warmer and drier climate. Both the factors have led plant species to higher altitudes. Study researchers were of the view that if results of survey are assessed that was taken some five decades ago by Robert H Whittakerthe with the present plant communities then the change will be noticed.

It is quite clear from the comparative analysis that the plants are being pushed to high elevations at a southern Arizona mountain. Lead researcher Richard C Brusca was of the view that their study is one of a kind that has proved that climate change has led plants in southern Arizona to up slope.

"Our study provides the first on-the-ground proof of plants being forced significantly up slope due to climate warming in southern Arizona", said Brusca.

It has been found that study researchers have focused on 27 plants species. After assessing the data, it has been found that 75% of these plants have moved up. Study's co-researcher William Niering said that there are some plants that have moved up some thousands of feet.
