Overview

The impacts of global warming are of concern to all of us. The
potential responses of birds to climate change have come increasingly
to the fore, and are of particular interest to the ornithological
community. Are birds sensitive to climate change and how will they
react to a world of global warming? These are the key issues to be
explored in this book, with particular reference to Western Palearctic
birds.

Climate changes that have affected the region in the last two million
years will be explored, drawing on published data on fossil birds. A
major part of the book will be devoted to the distribution of Western
Palearctic birds in relation to bioclimate. The final section of the
book looks at migration and the relationship of the Western Palearctic
to Africa.

Prof. Clive Finlayson is Director of the Gibraltar Museum. He is an
evolutionary ecologist with a DPhil from Oxford. He is a leading
exponent of the relationship between climate change and species
distributions, and is the author of several books including
Neanderthals and Modern Humans (CUP), and Birds of the Straits of
Gibraltar (Poyser).
