Global Warming To Impact The Tropics Sooner Than You Think

Unless greenhouse gas emissions are stabilized, the average location on Earth will experience a radically different climate by the year 2047, experts from the University of Hawaii, Manoa claim in research published in Thursday’s edition of the journal Nature.

A new study has shed light on the potential of birds to survive in the face of climate change.

Climate Change Is Having Major Impact On Biodiversity

Global warming is causing plant and animal species to alter their geographic ranges and the timing of key life events such as migrating, flowering, or laying eggs.

How Does Climate Change Affect Animals?
2012-08-19 06:57:39

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.

Species Interactions Could Be Affected By Global Warming

Yale and University of Connecticut researchers report that more extinctions will take place due to global warming should "scientists fail to account for interactions among species in their models."

Plants are leafing out and flowering sooner each year than predicted by results from controlled environmental warming experiments, according to data from a major new archive of historical observations assembled with the help of a NASA researcher.

To better predict the future, Jack Williams is looking to the past.

Image 1 - Climate Change Could Create Big Ecosystem Changes
2011-12-15 04:37:38

By 2100, global climate change will modify plant communities covering almost half of Earth's land surface and will drive the conversion of nearly 40 percent of land-based ecosystems from one major ecological community type - such as forest, grassland or tundra - toward another.

2011-12-05 11:07:44

The ranges of species will have to change dramatically as a result of climate change between now and 2100 because the climate will change more than 100 times faster than the rate at which species can adapt.
