How are mountain systems responding to the effects of global change?

The MtnLab is a CREAF research group led by Bernat Claramunt focused on mountain systems. The members of the group work on different conservation and research projects of animal and plant communities in this environment, and  study the role that climate and land use change play on their future.

At MtnLab we are leading or participating in projects focused on a single species (for example, alpine marmot, rock partridge, golden eagle, or Pyrenean owl), as well as in projects with a more holistic vision in which we study from microbial activity to the community of large ungulates (Earthwatch project), using both classical methodologies in ecology and more novel approaches, such as the use of drones.

The MtnLab leads NEMOR, the European network of mountain research.
