Abstract

The damage caused by climate change to plant communities is often obscured by a confluence of causes and vague deadlines, but in Montana there is an exception to that trend. The National Park Service in Montana has been leading efforts to document glacial melting. In the process, they have incidentally recorded ongoing damage to the handful of colonies of Pinguicula macroceras Link (Rice et al. 2008) that occur in Glacier National Park.

Keywords: climate change, Pinguicula macroceras, Montana, Glacier National Park
