Projecting global biodiversity responses from first biological principles

Project description

Climate change and its impact on biodiversity

The productivity and growth rates of forests, crops, and wild vegetation throughout the world have gradually increased because of the air’s carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration. As these concentrations continues to rise, plants will likely respond by growing more robustly and expanding their ranges. Realistic projections of the biological impacts of climate change require a unified framework capable of integrating advances from distinct research areas. The EU-funded SCALE project aims to closely examine how heat- and water-transfer mechanisms determine global patterns of species richness and thermal adaptations of terrestrial ectotherms, a group that is especially vulnerable to global change.
