First Romanian expedition to study the effects of climate change on the Great Boreal Forest starts at midnight, 15 June, in the city of Jibou (northwest of Romania).

RO-CRESS (Romanian Climate Change Research Expedition Siberia) is organized by Jibou Biological Research Center, in collaboration with the Babeş-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca, and ends on July 15th.

In this unique project through its world-class complexity, a group of 11 specialists in various fields such as botany, geography, entomology, zoology, dendrology and plant physiology will participate in this first expedition which is part of a wider project that tracks the effect of climate change on the Boreal Forest covering the Northern Hemisphere.

Specialists will travel along a route of about 20,000 kilometers, from northwest Romania, to the outskirts of Vladivostok, Russian Federation.

Total expedition costs amount to about 20,000 euros, according to Ziarul de Cluj.
