Animals can fall into an “ecological trap” by altering their behavior in the “wrong direction” in response to climate change, researchers say. The so-called “rescue… The post Climate Change Drives Babbler Birds Into “Ecological Trap” appeared first on SciTechDaily.
Global warming of 2°C would lead to about 230 billion tonnes of carbon being released from the world’s soil, new research suggests. Global soils contain two to three times more carbon than the atmosphere, and higher temperatures speed up decomposition – reducing the amount of time carbon spends in the soil (known as “soil carbon […]
