Changing Climate and Changing Lives: Move, Adapt or Go Extinct

Presented by Kerri Wrinn, associate professor, Natural Sciences and Mathematics, College of Integrated Studies

The effects of human-induced climate change have begun to escalate within the last 20 years, with 9 of the 10 hottest years on record falling within this period.  Climate change influences different species in different ways.   This talk focuses on how species are responding to changing environmental conditions by shifting where they live, altering their life cycle patterns, or if they can’t move or adapt, progressing closer to the threat of extinction.   We can use what we learn about how other species are adapting to climate change to help form our own plans for living in a future with altered climate.
