Record #176144:

Enhancement of the ecological value of Forni Glacier (Central Alps) as a possible geomorphosite: new data from arthropod communities / Manuela Pelfini, Mauro Gobbi.

Title: Enhancement of the ecological value of Forni Glacier (Central Alps) as a possible geomorphosite: new data from arthropod communities / Manuela Pelfini, Mauro Gobbi.
Author(s): Pelfini, Manuela.
Gobbi, Mauro.
Date: 2005.
In: Geografia Fisica e Dinamica Quaternaria. (2005.), Vol. 28(2) (2005)
Abstract: Highlights ecological value of Forni Glacier (Italy's largest), emphasizing value of arthropod communities found on glacier surface and lateral moraine as biological indicators. Presents original data on invertebrates inhabiting site. Summarizes historical record, scenic, cultural and socio-economic (e.g., touristic) attributes, historical record of glacier fluctuations, etc., supporting establishment of site as "Geosite" in UNESCO list of environmental assets. Describes collection of arthropods with different wing morphologies, noting potential of some wingless species sensitive to environmental change to contribute proxy climate change data. These prey on flying arthropods drifted by upward winds and therefore depend strictly on glacier evolution.
