CIRMOUNT-sponsored projects are action-oriented, product-driven working
groups that seek to advance CIRMOUNT goals. In some cases, projects
are sponsored by CIRMOUNT and in others CIRMOUNT is a partner. Projects
are open to all interested; contact project leaders for further information.
Current CIRMOUNT projects include:
- North American GLORIA (Global Observation Research Initiative in
Alpine Environments) promotes coordinated and integrated monitoring
on mountain summits of alpine plant response to climate change using
the international GLORIA protocol and additional research approaches.
Contact Connie Millar, (cmillar[a]fs.fed.us).
- North American Treeline Network (NATN) brings together scientists
and resource managers interested in treeline ecotones of mountain
regions in North America to catalyze integrated research across disciplines,
scales, and methodologies and to promote understanding of past and
present treeline dynamics. Contact Dave Cairns, (cairns[at]tamu.edu).
