Poleward shifts in geographical ranges of butterfly species associated with regional warming
Mean global temperatures have risen this century, and further warming is predicted to continue for the next 50–100 years. Some migratory species can respond rapidly to yearly climate variation byExpand

A flexible approach to assessing synchroneity of past events using Bayesian reconstructions of sedimentation history
The dating of depths in two or more cores is frequently followed by a study of the synchroneity or otherwise of events reflected in the cores. The difficulties most frequently encountered are: (a)Expand

Influence of slope and aspect on long‐term vegetation change in British chalk grasslands
Summary 1 The species composition of fragmented semi-natural grasslands may change over time due to stochastic local extinction and colonization events, successional change and/or as a response toExpand

Responses of butterflies to twentieth century climate warming: implications for future ranges
We analyse distribution records for 51 British butterfly species to investigate altitudinal and latitudinal responses to twentieth century climate warming. Species with northern and/or montaneExpand

Habitat microclimates drive fine‐scale variation in extreme temperatures
Most multicellular terrestrial organisms experience climate at scales of millimetres to metres, yet most species-climate associations are analysed at resolutions of kilometres or more. BecauseExpand

Evidence for last interglacial chronology and environmental change from Southern Europe
Establishing phase relationships between earth-system components during periods of rapid global change is vital to understanding the underlying processes. It requires records of each component withExpand

Weichselian palynostratigraphy, palaeovegetation and palaeoenvironment; the record from Lago Grande di Monticchio, southern Italy
Abstract The palynostratigraphic record from Lago Grande di Monticchio (S. Italy) is presented. An independent sedimentation-rate-based chronology provides an age of 101,530 calendar years BP for theExpand

Holocene persistence of wooded steppe in the Great Hungarian Plain
Aim  We used a combination of new and previously published palaeoecological data to test three hypotheses: (1) that wooded steppe persisted in the Great Hungarian Plain throughout the Holocene; (2)Expand

Potential impacts of climatic change upon geographical distributions of birds
Potential climatic changes of the near future have important characteristics that differentiate them from the largest magnitude and most rapid of climatic changes of the Quaternary. These potentialExpand
