U of T researchers share way to predict vulnerability of animals, plants
If it seems like you’re pulling more bass than trout out of Ontario’s lakes this summer, you probably are.
Blame it on the ripple effect of climate change and warming temperatures. Birds migrate earlier, flowers bloom faster, and fish move to newly warmed waters putting local species at risk.
To mitigate the trend and support conservation efforts, scientists at the University of Toronto are sharing a way to predict which plants or animals may be vulnerable to the arrival of a new species.
