Climate change could kill world's oldest trees: Study 3.1.2017 DNA: Money
Warming temperatures due to climate change may spell the end for some of the oldest trees on the planet, a new study has warned. Bristlecone pines - including Methusaleh, one of the world's oldest trees have lived in North America's Great Basin for thousands of years. However, warming temperatures due to climate change could cause trouble for the ancient trees by tipping the ecological balance in favour of the conifer's neighbour, the limber pine, scientists said. Both limber and bristlecone pines are adapted to the temperature and moisture of subalpine forests. As the species' favourite temperatures move up mountains due to climate change, logic says the trees should follow them upward. Now a new study has found limber pines are leap-frogging over bristlecones: most of all the juvenile trees above the historic treeline are limber pines. "The (trees) are not just moving in lock step. Species are moving around the landscape in unpredictable ways," said Brian Smithers, an ecologist at the University of ...
