Climate change has always affected living organisms; however, current climate change is exceptional both in terms of the rate of change and the impact on individuals, populations, species, and ecosystems. This volume provides an exhaustive and up-to-date synthesis of the science of climate change as it relates to birds. Compared with any other class of animals, birds provide more long-term data and extensive time series (some dating back more than 100 years), a more geographically and taxonomically diverse source of information, and a longer tradition of extensive research. In fact this research record exceeds what is available in all other organisms combined. Also available in hardcover [stock id 33892].
