Outrageous weather conditions, for example, delayed dry season and weighty precipitation turning out to be increasingly more typical as the worldwide normal temperature climbs – and it will just deteriorate in the next few decades. How will the planet’s ecosystems and wildlife respond to this climate change occurring?
That is the central issue and the foundation for our review said scholar John Jackson. Along with his scholar partners Christie Le Coeur from the University of Oslo and Owen Jones from SDU, he created another review, distributed in eLife.
In this study, the scientists analyzed the data which was received from over 157 mammal species from around the world. They compared them with the weather and climate data from the time. Each species of animal had over 10 years of data.
This new study focuses on how different mammals react to climate change. This new study revealed that animals which live for a long time and produce fewer offspring like Bison and bears are more resilient to climate change compared to smaller animals with a shorter lifespan like mice and lemmings.
Let’s hope that we can stop climate change to conserve all of the animals and wildlife to make our beloved earth a better place to live!!
