Israeli scientists on the ground are already trying to identify manifestations of climate change. Local vegetation, some of them say, reflects the changing weather patterns and might help in determining further consequences.

Nevertheless, these very recent studies mostly testify for the largely unexplored field of climate change and its various local implications. Accordingly, the effects of shifts in rainfall regimes – a critical aspect in this part of the world – turn out to be a bone of contention among Israeli botanists.
