Humans can learn from animals and insects about impact of climate change

If we pay closer attention to how birds, rabbits and termites transform their local living spaces in response to varying climate conditions, we could become much better at predicting what impact climate change will have on them in future.This is according researchers* from the Universities of Montana and Wyoming (USA), Tours (France) and Stellenbosch (South Africa). They examined how animals' ability to respond to climate change likely depends on how well they modify their habitats, such as the ...

Capturing 40 years of climate change for an endangered Montana prairie

Over 40 years of monitoring, an endangered bunchgrass prairie became hotter, drier and more susceptible to fire annually--but dramatic seasonal changes (not annual climate trends) seem to be driving the biggest changes in plant production, composition, and summer senescence. Gary Belovsky and Jennifer Slade of The University of Notre Dame, Indiana, present these findings in the open-access journal PLOS ONE on December 23, 2020.
