Gosh. Study highlights species that are ‘deceptively resilient’ to climate change
From the UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA – DAVIS and the “sneaky Nature will get you with climate change… someday” department.
Species may appear deceptively resilient to climate change
Ecological air conditioning offers short-term protection from a warming climate
Nature itself can be the best defense against climate change for many species — at least in the short term — according to a study published in the journal Ecology Letters from the University of California, Davis.
The study found that natural habitats play a vital role in helping other plants and animals resist heat stresses ramping up with climate change — at least until the species they depend on to form those habitats become imperiled. This suggests a need to re-evaluate climate change predictions for many species, including predictions that species in the south will move north with global warming.
