Abstract

The climate of the Rocky Mountains is being altered drastically due to the effects of global climate change. If current rates of temperature change continue the alpine tundra in this region faces extinction. Using data gathered from various sites located in the Niwot Ridge (CO) this project discusses changes in the plant and animal life of the area due to apparent recent changes in the local climate.
