Alpine cliffs and screes



Alpine cliffs and screes are bare, icy, rocky areas amongst permanent snow fields. Vascular vegetation is low and sparse or absent, and the most common plants are crustose lichens and bryophytes (Keith et al., in review).

Assessment summary

This ecosystem is restricted to small areas in northern Myanmar, but inferred threatening processes are unlikely to cause continuing declines of a non-negligible magnitude in extent. Least Concern.
