Rapid Range Shifts of Species Associated with High Levels of Climate Warming
A meta-analysis shows that species are shifting their distributions in response to climate change at an accelerating rate. The distributions of many terrestrial organisms are currently shifting inExpand

The distributions of a wide range of taxonomic groups are expanding polewards
Evidence is accumulating of shifts in species' distributions during recent climate warming. However, most of this information comes predominantly from studies of a relatively small selection of taxaExpand

Rapid responses of British butterflies to opposing forces of climate and habitat change
Habitat degradation and climate change are thought to be altering the distributions and abundances of animals and plants throughout the world, but their combined impacts have not been assessed forExpand

Phenology of British butterflies and climate change
Summary Data from a national butterfly monitoring scheme were analysed to test for relationships between temperature and three phenological measures, duration of flight period and timing of bothExpand

Comparative Losses of British Butterflies, Birds, and Plants and the Global Extinction Crisis
There is growing concern about increased population, regional, and global extinctions of species. A key question is whether extinction rates for one group of organisms are representative of otherExpand

How well do we understand the impacts of alien species on ecosystem services? A pan-European, cross-taxa assessment
Recent comprehensive data provided through the DAISIE project (www.europe-aliens.org) have facilitated the development of the first pan-European assessment of the impacts of alien plants,Expand

Trophic level asynchrony in rates of phenological change for marine, freshwater and terrestrial environments
Recent changes in the seasonal timing (phenology) of familiar biological events have been one of the most conspicuous signs of climate change. However, the lack of a standardized approach toExpand

A northward shift of range margins in British Odonata
Many species are predicted to shift their ranges to higher latitudes and altitudes in response to climate warming. This study presents evidence for 37 species of nonmigratory British dragonflies andExpand
