Effects of Climate Change on Birdsby Anders Pape Moller
Synopses & Reviews
Climate change affects all living organisms; it has done so in the past and will do so in the future. However, current climate change is exceptional both in terms of the rate of change and the impact of multiple types of global change on individuals, populations, species, and ecosystems.
Effects of Climate Change on Birds provides an exhaustive and up-to-date synthesis of the science of climate change as it relates to birds. Compared with any other class of animals, birds provide more long-term data and extensive time series (some dating back more than 100 years), a more geographically and taxonomically diverse source of information, and a longer tradition of extensive research. In fact this research record exceeds what is available in all other organisms combined.
About the Author
Anders Pape Møller is a senior scientist with extensive research experience in different fields ranging from ecology to evolution, genetics and physiology. He has published extensively in the scientific literature including several books.
Wolfgang Fiedler is head of Bird Ringing at Vogelwarte Radolfzell, Germany, and he has extensive experience on research on birds and migration.
Peter Berthold is professor emeritus and former senior scientist at Max-Planck Institute of Ornithology. He has extensive research experience on studies of genetics and migration, and he has published extensively on birds in the scientific literature including several books.
