Recent climate change is shifting species' elevational ranges. Yet, most research effort has concentrated on the uppermost occurrences of species and little is known about changes to species' rear edges, optima and abundances. However, only the simultaneous consideration of these range attributes allows for assessing the fate of mountain plants under climate change. Instead of using exactly localizable plots, we re-surveyed over 1500 semi-permanent historical vegetation relevés spread over the European Alps to overcome these shortages. Based on this dataset we evaluated recent range dynamics along the elevational gradient, traits associated with particular responses to climate, and the emergence of dispersal limited distribution patterns and extinction debts.
