L’heure est grave : le #changement_climatique menace nos jolies #photos d’automne!
Higher temperatures and new patterns of precipitation are putting pressure on some tree species, either directly or via altered conditions for disease-bearing fungi, bacteria and insects. Landscapes are already changing as species behind some of the most dramatic of autumn’s colour shows move north and to higher latitudes. Scientists say that the more frequent droughts and greater cloud cover that some areas will see thanks to climate change is likely to reduce the production of leaf pigments that provide some of the season’s most vivid colours.
