Muccione, Veruska ; Orlowsky, Boris ; Allen, Simon K. ; Huggel, Christian ; Salzmann, Nadine ; Montoya, Nilton ; Randhawa, Surjeet Singh ; Stoffel, Markus

In: Development in Practice, 2019, vol. 29, no. 3, p. 336–348

This article reflects on the merits and shortfalls of bilateral research programmes aimed at strengthening climate change research capabilities, using the experience from two programmes, the PACC and IHCAP in Peru and India, respectively. The study highlights key aspects of these types of bilateral programmes, namely: capacity; performance, salary and appreciation; funding; bureaucracy and...

In: The Cryosphere, 2018, vol. 12, no. 2, p. 759–794

The mountain cryosphere of mainland Europe is recognized to have important impacts on a range of environmental processes. In this paper, we provide an overview on the current knowledge on snow, glacier, and permafrost processes, as well as their past, current, and future evolution. We additionally provide an assessment of current cryosphere research in Europe and point to the different...

Imprisoned in the Cretan mountains: How relict Zelkova abelicea (Ulmaceae) trees cope with Mediterranean climate

Fazan, Laurence ; Guillet, Sébastien ; Corona, Christophe ; Kozlowski, Gregor ; Stoffel, Markus

In: Science of The Total Environment, 2017, vol. 599–600, no. Supplement C, p. 797–805

We investigate the sensitivity of the relict, endemic Cretan tree species Zelkova abelicea (Lam.) Boiss. (Ulmaceae) to several climate variables (temperature, precipitation and drought). For this purpose, we establish the first centennial tree-ring chronology for the species, and the first ever tree-ring chronology for a broadleaved species on Crete. We demonstrate the strong sensitivity of...
