Range shift in alpine plants:the study was intended to investigate if topographic effects on environmental conditions (soil moisture) will enhance plasticity in plants (alpine species). Thus, if topography will serve as a buffer shielding plants in heterogeneous landscapes against future environmental changes. If true, then climate change effects predicted to cause range shift in plants will have less impacts in alpine environments.
