Plant community composition in relation to climatic gradients in Young Sund, North East Greenland

Project: Research

See relations at Aarhus University


The objective of the project is to analyse the influence of climatic variations on the vegetation composition in Young Sund in North East Greenland. The analysis will be based on vegetation analyses conducted in a large number of randomly selected permanent plots spanning the most important climatic gradients in the area, including degree of continentality and altitude. The study will serve as a basis for predictions of the effects of climate changes on the vegetation in North East Greenland. The study will at the same time serve as a reference point for documenting changes in the vegetation composition.
