In Dot Alpine reporter Joanna Nasar examines the impact of climate change on high alpine ecosystems in Colorado. Colorado is famously home to 53 mountains above 14,000 feet in elevation and Colorado makes up three-fourths of the United States land area above 10,000 feet in elevation says the U.S.G.S. web site. Alpine topography is part of the lifestyle and environment for plants, animals and people of Colorado. Nasar tracks relevant science and explores findings with readers in an interactive manner.
