A view of the Freissinieres Valley from 2400m

The important element here is the tree line (currently at c. 2000m). As noted above, understanding of the waxing and waning of the forest is essential for our research. Changes in the nature, and vertical extent of trees and plants are a response to the complex interplay of people and climate. Mountain environments are incredibly sensitive to environmental change and human activity.
