Nowadays, ubrapt climatic and edaphic alterationshave dramatically disrupt the normal function of the “environmental cycles”, as that of the water and nitrogen cyle etc. Phenomena like the “greenhouse effect” and the “eutrophication” induce the need for continuous monitoring and recording of abiotic factors (such as air and soil temperature, moisture etc.) that are the main contributors for the climatic and edafic alterations.
Based on those abrupt alterations, ecosystems unable to acclimatize and adapt in time, resulting in difficulties in surviving. The most fragile ecosystems in maintaining their ecological balance are the forest ecosystems, due to their complexity by the increased levels of biodiversity. More about Valasia at www.balasia.gr
