New Study Finds That Focal Species in Similar Habitats will Respond Differently to Climate Change

Scientists currently have little understanding about the degree to which species that use similar habitats will experience and respond to climate and land-use change. Southeast Climate Adaptation Science Center (SE CASC) supported researchers assessed suitable connected habitat for focal species in the southeastern U.S. under a changing climate and found that each species faces different levels of climate and land-use threat and though these focal species inhabit similar spaces, their ability to adapt to future changes differs.
