  • Global climate change is frequently considered a major conservation threat. The Earth's climate has already warmed by 0.5 8 C over the past century, and recent studies show that it is possible to detect the ef- fects of a changing climate on ecological systems. This suggests that global change may be a current and fu- ture conservation threat. Changes in recent decades are apparent at all levels of ecological organization: pop- ulation and life-history changes, shifts in geographic range… CONTINUE READING
