How global environmental change alters biodiversity
From bumblebees to giraffes and insects to sharks, every species around the world is impacted by climate change. For instance, rising temperatures means spring flowers bloom earlier and leave less time for bees to pollinate. This is just one example of how changing seasonal patterns can adversely affect the demography of interacting species. The EU-funded SEASON project will study how global environmental change alters biodiversity. It will link demographic processes and biotic interactions under changes in the seasonality of environmental factors across time and space. An analytical tool will be developed to assess how demography-biotic-interaction feedbacks mediate multispecies population responses to seasonality change. Several species’ responses to seasonality will be assessed simultaneously.
