Here at 500m near the Glasshouses, I’m looking at the 20-year observations, & 
in comparison with recent changes. In SEQ this elevation appears to be 
differently sensitive to regional climate events, as it’s cooler & wetter than 
surrounding lowland habitat, which perhaps emphasises impact upon local 
sub-tropical spp.
