Consequences of shifting species distributions Climate change is causing geographical redistribution of plant and animal species globally. These distributional shifts are leading to new ecosystems and ecological communities, changes that will affect human society. Pecl et al. review these current and future impacts and assess their implications for sustainable development goals. Science, this issue p. eaai9214 BACKGROUND The success of human societies depends intimately on the living components… Expand
Predicted climate shifts within terrestrial protected areas worldwide
TLDR
This work calculates the projected gain and loss of climate conditions within terrestrial protected areas worldwide and guides adaptation measures towards PAs that are strongly affected by climate change, and of low adaption capacity and high conservation value. Expand
Managing consequences of climate‐driven species redistribution requires integration of ecology, conservation and social science

TLDR
It is demonstrated how ecological, conservation and social research on species redistribution can best be achieved by working across disciplinary boundaries to develop and implement solutions to climate change challenges. Expand
Multiple facets of marine biodiversity in the Pacific Arctic under future climate.
TLDR
Examination of the impacts of climate change projections in the 21st century on marine biodiversity in the Eastern Bering and Chukchi seas within the Pacific Arctic shows how integrating multiple diversity facets can provide key insights into the relationships between climate change, species composition and ecosystem functioning across marine biogeographic regions.

Poleward bound: adapting to climate-driven species redistribution
TLDR
This work describes key drivers related to climate-driven species redistributions that are likely to have a high impact and influence on whether a sustainable future is achievable by 2030 and synthesises examples of such actions as the basis of a strategic approach to tackle this global-scale challenge.

Moving up and over: redistribution of plants in alpine, Arctic, and Antarctic ecosystems under global change
ABSTRACT Extreme abiotic conditions, geographic isolation, and low levels of disturbance have historically provided alpine, Arctic, and Antarctic regions with low input of and relative resistance toExpand
IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE ON SMALL-RANGED AMPHIBIANS OF THE NORTHERN ATLANTIC FOREST
Climate change is shifting species distribution all around the world. Amphibians are particularly vulnerable to these environmental changes, as they are highly sensitive to fluctuations in rainfallExpand
Temperature-related biodiversity change across temperate marine and terrestrial systems
TLDR
A strong coupling between biodiversity and temperature changes in the marine realm is found, which is conditional on the baseline climate, and systematic temperature-related richness or abundance trends on land are detected, despite a greater magnitude of warming. Expand
Temperature-related biodiversity change across temperate marine and terrestrial systems
TLDR
Biodiversity time series from temperate regions reveal that marine communities in warmer places gain species but lose individuals with warming, but colder environments show weaker trends, whereas no systematic relationships between biodiversity and temperature change were detectable for terrestrial communities. Expand
Climate change, biological invasions, and the shifting distribution of Mediterranean fishes: A large-scale survey based on local ecological knowledge.
TLDR
This work accessed the local ecological knowledge (LEK) of small-scale and recreational fishers, reconstructing the dynamics of fish perceived as "new" or increasing in different fishing areas and demonstrates that adequately structured LEK methodology might be applied successfully beyond the local scale, across national borders and jurisdictions. Expand
Climate change threatens the most biodiverse regions of Mexico
Abstract Climate change threatens Earth's biodiversity, although its impacts are variable and depend on the capacity of species and ecosystems to cope with the magnitude and speed of change. NaturalExpand

Climate Change Refugia for Terrestrial Biodiversity: defining areas that promote species persistence and ecosystem resilience in the face of global climate change
We are currently facing the likelihood of severe climate change before the close of the century. In the face of such a global driver of species loss, we urgently need to identify refugia that willExpand
Climate-Related Local Extinctions Are Already Widespread among Plant and Animal Species
  • J. Wiens

  • 2016
TLDR
Overall, the results suggest that local extinctions related to climate change are already widespread, even though levels of climate change so far are modest relative to those predicted in the next 100 years. Expand
Long-term empirical evidence of ocean warming leading to tropicalization of fish communities, increased herbivory, and loss of kelp
TLDR
An increase in the proportion of warmwater species (“tropicalization”) as oceans warm is increasing fish herbivory in kelp forests, contributing to their decline and subsequent persistence in alternate “kelp-free” states, and posing a significant threat to kelp-dominated ecosystems in Australia and globally.

Multiple Dimensions of Climate Change and Their Implications for Biodiversity
TLDR
This review critically assesses the variety of metrics commonly used to describe climate change in biodiversity-impact assessments covering local changes in climate averages and extremes, regional changes in the availability and position of climates, and the velocity of climate change. Expand
Do stream fish track climate change? Assessing distribution shifts in recent decades
Understanding the ability of species to shift their distribution ranges in response to climate change is crucial for conservation biologists and resources managers. Although freshwater ecosystemsExpand
Climate-driven regime shift of a temperate marine ecosystem
TLDR
It is shown that extreme warming of a temperate kelp forest off Australia resulted not only in its collapse, but also in a shift in community composition that brought about an increase in herbivorous tropical fishes that prevent the reestablishment of kelp. Expand
Climate change and deepening of the North Sea fish assemblage: a biotic indicator of warming seas
Summary 1. Climate change impacts have been observed on individual species and species subsets; however, it remains to be seen whether there are systematic, coherent assemblage-wide responses toExpand

Global biodiversity scenarios for the year 2100.
TLDR
This study identified a ranking of the importance of drivers of change, aranking of the biomes with respect to expected changes, and the major sources of uncertainties in projections of future biodiversity change. Expand
Toward a loss of functional diversity in stream fish assemblages under climate change.
TLDR
Investigation of the relationship between the degrees of originality and uniqueness of fish species, and their projected response to future climate change, and the consequences of individual responses of species for the functional diversity of fish assemblages finds that disturbance favors communities with combination of common traits and biotic homogenization.
