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, and that the range shift of each species depends on multiple internal species traits and external drivers of change.
The distributions of a wide range of taxonomic groups are expanding polewards
It is shown that a wide variety of vertebrate and invertebrate species have moved northwards and uphill in Britain over approximately 25 years, mirroring, and in some cases exceeding, the responses of better‐known groups.
Rapid responses of British butterflies to opposing forces of climate and habitat change
The dual forces of habitat modification and climate change are likely to cause specialists to decline, leaving biological communities with reduced numbers of species and dominated by mobile and widespread habitat generalists.
Phenology of British butterflies and climate change
It is predicted that climate warming of the order of 1 °C could advance first and peak appearance of most butterflies by 2–10 days, in the absence of confounding factors.

Comparative Losses of British Butterflies, Birds, and Plants and the Global Extinction Crisis
A comparison at the national scale of population and regional extinctions of birds, butterflies, and vascular plants from Britain in recent decades is presented, strengthening the hypothesis that the natural world is experiencing the sixth major extinction event in its history.

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,…
A northward shift of range margins in British Odonata
Evidence is presented for 37 species of nonmigratory British dragonflies and damselflies shifting northwards at their range margins over the past 40 years, seemingly as a result of climate change.
Differences in the climatic debts of birds and butterflies at a continental scale
Climate changes have profound effects on the distribution of numerous plant and animal species(1-3). However, whether and how different taxonomic groups are able to track climate changes at large…
