Birds track their Grinnellian niche through a century of climate change

Tingley, Morgan W.; Monahan, William B.; Beissinger, Steven R.; Moritz, Craig

Description

In the face of environmental change, species can evolve new physiological tolerances to cope with altered climatic conditions or move spatially to maintain existing physiological associations with particular climates that define each species' climatic niche. When environmental change occurs over short temporal and large spatial scales, vagile species are expected to move geographically by tracking their climatic niches through time. Here, we test for evidence of niche tracking in bird species...[Show more]
