Euromontana, the European Association of Mountain areas with the Mountain Research Centre (CIMO) of the Polytechnic institute of Bragança (IPB) and the Association for the Development of Viticulture in the Douro Region (ADVID) in Portugal are organising the X European Mountain...

Mountain ecosystems and communities are extremely vulnerable to climate change. There is evidence that temperatures are rising faster at higher altitudes. High mountains are ‘highly temperature sensitive regions’, with several extreme impact events of recent decades attributed to...

Abstracts for the I International Conference on Research for Sustainable Development in Mountain Regions are still being accepted. Researchers, practitioners, experts and decision-makers...

As more heat-trapping greenhouse gases (GhG) and short-lived climate pollutants (SLCP) accumulate in the atmosphere, there is little hope of reining in climate change. Already there is strong evidence that the Earth is one degree Celsius hotter than at the start of the 20th century....

Seated in a circle around the conference room at Blue Mountain Community College in Pendleton, about 30 people gathered Saturday afternoon to discuss the effects of climate change on local forests and what can be done to make the landscape more adaptable.

Just as the last of the blushing light drained from the sky in western Mongolia, the “ghost of the mountain” struck at the foot of sacred Jargalan mountain where the rocky snow line gives way to a dry and treeless expanse of steppe.

“I saw my animals were...

Global climate models project stronger warming at high elevations, with potentially disastrous consequences for its ecosystems services (ESS). For instance, melting glaciers alone will affect the water supply of millions people, while soil degradation and erosion put local...
