Radley, M, Paul; Davis, Robert; Dekker, WRJ, Rene; Molloy, W, Shaun; Blake, David; Heinsohn, Robert

Description

Aspects of species life histories may increase their susceptibility to climate change. Owing to their exclusive reliance on environmental sources of heat for incubation, megapodes may be especially vulnerable. We employed a trait-based vulnerability assessment to weigh their exposure to projected climate variables of increasing temperatures, fluctuating rainfall and sea level rise and their biological sensitivity and capacity to adapt. While all 21 species were predicted to experience at least...[Show more]
