    Abstract

    Highlights

    • Recent/future changes in bioclimate show loss of Oroarctic/Boreal zones.

    • Recent/future changes in bioclimate show expansion of Temperate zone.

    • Changes in zonation are also marked by uphill shifts in class boundaries.

    • Montane heath is priority habitat at highest risk of loss due to zone changes.

    • Combined use of heuristics and data collection can further enhance zonation.
