Global warming keeps birds from continuing their race
It is noted that high temperatures reduce the specific behavior of males, which is used to attract females, as well as to protect the territory. Thus, an increase in temperature puts birds in a difficult position, in which they have to choose between procreation and shelter in order to protect themselves from the heat. Researchers predict a further decline in bird activity in some areas to 10% by 2100 due to global warming.
“Our findings underscore the need for further work to understand the mechanisms underlying the response to climate change and to assess the impact that these changes may have at the population level.”. scientists are focusing attention.
