The push and pull of climate change causes heterogeneous shifts in avian elevational ranges

Tingley, Morgan W.; Koo, Michelle S.; Moritz, Craig; Rush, Andrew C.; Beissinger, Steven R.

Description

Projected effects of climate change on animal distributions primarily focus on consequences of temperature and largely ignore impacts of altered precipitation. While much evidence supports temperature-driven range shifts, there is substantial heterogeneity in species' responses that remains poorly understood. We resampled breeding ranges of birds across three elevational transects in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, USA, that were extensively surveyed in the early 20th century. Presence-absence...[Show more]
