How are mountains in danger from climate change?

    For one, glaciers on mountains all over the world are melting away, changing the geography of the landscape and raising the sea levels. This not only lowers the summit altitude, but reduces our world’s fresh water reserves.

    One interesting point to look at is from the view of species in mountain ecosystems. In many cases, there are species that live in small regions of mountain areas. As climate change occurs, species of plants and animals’ habitat ranges will be altered. For ex. a species that lives on top of a mountain has no where to go as temperatures increase opposed to a species living at the base of the mountain being able to move its range up the mountain as temperatures increase.
