Science: Species’ Ranges Are Shifting Faster Than Expected in Warming Climate

To beat the heat, many species have started moving up in elevation and away from the equator much faster than researchers had predicted, according to a new study in Science.


I guess it is good news that the migrations are happening 2-3 times faster than scientists had expected. But they are not stampeding, moving about 10 miles oer decade.

I wonder if there will be a ring around the equator where little life exists? Nah but it will be interesting to see if the new data alters the modeling of these migrations.
