Ecological Impacts of Climate Change - Joshua Lawler, University of Washington

Will Animals be Able to Track Projected Changes in Climate?
Joshua Lawler, University of Washington

In the past, as the earth’s climates changed, many species moved across continents to track suitable conditions. Projected future changes in climate will likely result in similar shifts in today’s flora and fauna. Here, I discuss two studies that explore whether mammals will be able to move fast enough to track projected changes in climate and how mammals, birds, and amphibians will likely move across human-dominated landscapes to track changing climates.
