Overview

Temperature and other climate variables are currently changing at a dramatic rate. As observations have shown, these climatic changes have serious consequences for all organisms and their ability to adapt to changing environmental conditions. Birds are excellent model organisms: they have a very active metabolism, they are highly sensitive to environmental changes, and, as highly mobile creatures, they are also extremely reactive. Birds and Climate Change discusses our current knowledge of observed changes and provides guidelines for future studies, so we can document and understand how patterns of changing weather conditions may affect birds.

Audience: Scientists and academicians studying ecology, evolution, plant biology, physiology, the environment, population biology, and entomology.
