As part of an effort to better understand and predict how animals will respond to changing environmental conditions associated with global warming, researchers have published a pair of studies investigating why some species move in response to climate change and where they go.
The generation defined by Tupac’s “Me Against the World” and Nirvana’s “Nevermind” is still slacking when it comes to saving the environment.
A modeling study from the European Alps suggests that population declines to be observed during the upcoming decades will probably underestimate the long-term effects of recent climate warming on mountain plants.
After experiencing several years of severe weather, including extreme heat, droughts and tornadoes in unusual locations, it seems the public has finally come around to the idea of global warming.
In order to explain some of the weird weather occurring across the world over the past few years, scientists have begun to research the loss of arctic sea ice.
The past decade has been one of unprecedented weather extremes. Scientists of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) in Germany argue that the high incidence of extremes is not merely accidental.
Oceanographers have identified a series of ocean hotspots around the world generated by strengthening wind systems that have driven oceanic currents, including the East Australian Current, polewards beyond their known boundaries.
The decade from 2000 to 2009 was the warmest since global climate has been measured, and while localized studies have shown evidence of changes in mountain plant communities that reflect this warming trend, no study has yet taken a continental-scale view of the situation – until now.
