      It represents the proceedings from a workshop organized by Teagasc, the Irish Agriculture and Food Development Authority, at Johnstown Castle Research Centre, Wexford, Ireland in September The workshop resulted from the recognition that many of the lakes in Ireland, and elsewhere in the world, have continued to become more eutrophic.

Alpine ET was greatest during the winter, in part because of sublimation from blowing snow, which contributed from 27% to 48% of the alpine, and 6% to 9% of the catchment water balance, respectively. The subalpine ET peaked in summer. Alpine areas generated the majority of the catchment discharge, despite covering only 31% of the catchment area.

    As relief increased in the middle Tertiary, and especially during the Pliocene-Quaternary, the area suited for a subalpine forest zone increased significantly, enabling montane conifers to spread into that higher, colder environment and form a new major forest zone. The assemblages of soil nematodes were studied at fi ve alpine meadow sites, – m. a. s. l., in the Tatra National Park in the Slovak Republic. A total of species were distinguished, 19 species were recorded in the Slovak Republic for the fi rst time. The interesting new records.

Alpine and subalpine plant species are of special interest in ecology and ecophysiology because they represent life at the climate limit and changes in their relative abundances can be a bellwether for climate-change impacts.

Perennial life forms dominate alpine plant communities, and their form and function reflect various avoidance, tolerance, or resistance strategies to interactions of cold. Alpine and subalpine plant species are of special interest in ecology and ecophysiology because they represent life at the climate limit and changes in their relative abundances can be a.

A high proportion of the species diversity in alpine and subalpine areas can be attributed to herbs that have meristems belowground, including leafy herbs such as the circumboreal alpine sorrel (Oxyria digyna), glacier buttercup (Ranunculus glacialis), or bulb-forming glacier lily of the Rocky Mountains (Erythronium grandiflorum, Fig.

2).Subsurface meristems in these herbs enable avoidance. Alpine environments have been shown to host plant communities strongly driven by positive interactions between plants through biogenic amelioration.

This takes place at the local level, but it well prove to be as important as predictor of future plant diversity as the effects of climate change in alpine environments, as proven with several studies conducted in the Andes and other alpine.

Above the subalpine is the alpine zone, which is characterized by tundra, bare and lichen-covered rock, snow, and ice. Like all environments, GNP is subject to periodic disturbances that vary both in size and frequency. The most significant disturbance agent is forest fire at lower elevations, which periodically burns thousands of hectares of.

environments of the valley floor, where soils are finer-grained, older, and better developed and slopes are relatively flat. These results indicate that in alpine/subalpine basins, slope, vegetation (or lack thereof), and distribution and age of surficial materials are interrelated and can have major effects on stream water chemistry.

Introduction. Alpine ecosystems are significant for biodiversity, but only cover between –% of the Earth’s terrestrial landmass (excluding the Antarctic landmass;,).Many alpine and subalpine environments support highly endemic communities of taxa, such as reptiles, birds, and invertebrates.These ecosystems are also thought to be sensitive to human development.

This is for non-forest environment above or near natural tree line. Where forest has been lost, many alpine species migrate down to fill the space, hence this is intended to cover mountain grassland and shrubland generally.
