Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary Temperature and other climate variables are currently changing at a dramatic rate. As observations have shown, these climatic changes have serious consequences for all organisms and their ability to adapt to changing environmental conditions. 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. * Provides reviews of long-term datasets * Incorporates meta-analyses of studies about climate change effects on birds * Includes guidelines and suggestions for further studies.
