short season adaptation

26 July 2018

It is raining all day. Annual percipitation is increasing as a clear effect of climate change. Normal amounts are close to desert quantities: 385 mm per year says the met-office. The last year it was 554 mm and three times the normal amount in the month July. The rain is good for the grasses as you can see with this plant, which has a wonderful adaptation to the short season. The seeds germinate already on the seedhead. The gras is called alpine meadow-grass Poa alpina.
