Competition and Co-Existence in a Warmer World (video)

It has only taken me about five months (!) but have finally completed this film I shot in Switzerland in August.

This is a short film that documents the first stage of an ambitious experiment on the Calanda mountain near Chur, in the canton of Graubünden.

Ecologists from the ETH Zürich are investigating the effects of competition between alpine plant species under warmer climate conditions. They are monitoring plant communities in situ by moving turf samples from higher elevations to lower filed sites to simulate the projected change in climate over the next few decades.
