AMC Presents: Ecology of Alpine Snowbank Communities

Guest speaker and botanist Kevin Berend will present a program on the Ecology of Alpine Snowbank Communities. Alpine snowbank communities are rare, diverse ecosystems found in the Northeast only in sheltered sites above treeline, where snow insulates and shelters plants from wind and late-season frosts. These areas are highly sensitive to climate change, and may serve as indicators of regional changes in precipitation patterns and temperatures.
