Climate change already forcing world's birds towards poles, says report

from The Guardian

The world's birds have begun flocking towards the earth's north and south poles and upwards to higher ground as climate change begins to transform their habitats, a new report has found. One quarter of 570 bird species studied globally have been affected negatively by climate change, while 13% have responded positively, says the study by Birdlife International. One key trend involves 'warm-adapted' species becoming increasingly common in Europe while 'cool-adapted' animals experience dramatic declines. Birdlife's paper, The Messengers, predicts that most bird species will experience shrinking ranges, disrupted breeding seasons, and many are likely to shift their population distributions too slowly to cope with the onset of climate change. more
