Newswise: Climate is Changing Faster Than Animal Adaptation

Article ID: 717705

Climate is Changing Faster Than Animal Adaptation

Cornell University

An international team of scientists reviewed more than 10,000 published climate change studies and has reached a sobering conclusion. Birds and other animals cannot adapt fast enough to keep pace with climate change, throwing species survival in doubt.

Conservation or construction? Deciding waterbird hotspots

Michigan State University

MSU scientists show that conservation and construction decisions should rely on multiple approaches to determine waterbird “hotspots,” not just on one analysis method as is often done.

Hummingbird Adaptation in the Andes Reveals New Clues to the Biology of Evolution

Stony Brook University

Genetic changes are necessary for species to evolve and adapt to new environments. However, how can one predict such genetic changes? A new study led by Stony Brook University researchers reveals that this may be possible at a molecular level.

Successful ‘alien’ bird invasions are location dependent

University of Utah

A new study published today in Nature, shows that alien bird introductions are most successful in locations and climates similar to their native habitats and in places where other alien species are already established. The discovery is important for understanding the processes that help or hinder species moving between locations, and the next steps for predicting and limiting the threat of future biological invasions.

Bird of Prey: Evocative Film Reveals World’s Rarest Eagle and a New Chapter of Hope

Cornell University

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s debut film, the award-winning documentary Bird of Prey, is now available on iTunes, Amazon, and Vimeo. With fewer than 800 Great Philippine Eagles remaining on Earth, the film tells the moving tale of a small but devoted group of people who are determined to save these magnificent birds from extinction.

Analysis: World’s Protected Areas Safeguard Only a Fraction of Wildlife

Wildlife Conservation Society

A new analysis published in the journal Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment shows that the world’s protected areas (PAs) are experiencing major shortfalls in staffing and resources and are therefore failing on a massive scale to safeguard wildlife.
