Global warming is clearly affecting plants and animals, but we should not try to tease apart the specific contribution of greenhouse gas driven climate change to extinctions or declines of species at local scales, biologists advise.
A new study reviewed 136 case studies to determine the underlying causes of why many populations have gone extinct due to changing climate. According to the authors, extinctions of plant and animal populations from human-related cli... Read Post
One in 10 species could face extinction by the year 2100 if current climate change impacts continue, according to new research examining studies on the effects of recent climate change on plant and animal species and comparing this ... Read Post
Global climate change could cause widespread extinction of all sorts of plant and animals. The common sense explanation for this is that some, though it's more likely many, species will not be able to adapt to changes in their local... Read Post
