Birds and Climate Change

  • September 2006
  • Elsevier Science and Technology
Temperature and other climate variables are currently changing at a dramatic rate. Birds are excellent model organisms, with a very active metabolism, they are highly sensitive to environmental changes and as highly mobile creatures they are also extremely reactive. Birds and Climate Change discusses our current knowledge of observed changes and provides guidelines for studies in the years to come so we can document and understand how patterns of changing weather conditions may affect birds. The various chapters are written by leading experts in these fields and enlighten a broad range of aspects in bird ecology.
