Thermal physiological traits in tropical lowland amphibians: Vulnerability to climate warming and cooling

von May, Rudolf; Catenazzi, Alessandro; Santa-Cruz, Roy; Gutierrez, Andrea S.; Moritz, Craig; Rabosky, Daniel

Description

Climate change is affecting biodiversity and ecosystem function worldwide, and the lowland tropics are of special concern because organisms living in this region experience temperatures that are close to their upper thermal limits. However, it remains unclear how and whether tropical lowland species will be able to cope with the predicted pace of climate warming. Additionally, there is growing interest in examining how quickly thermal physiological traits have evolved across taxa, and...[Show more]
