Monitoring the Impact of Climate Change on the Flora & Vegetation Values of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area: A Review (2010)

The Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area (TWWHA) Flora Climate Change Monitoring Program aims to develop the climate change monitoring program for vegetation values in the TWWHA. The program aims to improve understanding of the impact of climate change on identified susceptible ecosystems including, changes in alpine vegetation through treeline movements and loss of snow lie, sea level change impacts on coastal communities, and changes in rainfall patterns which may impact on ground water depended systems.  The program also aims to identify opportunities for climate change adaptive management.
