Animals Evolving to Coping with Climate Change

The world’s animals are dealing with climate change in many ways. Some migrate to cooler climates and some change their migration and breeding to cooler climates. Animals have been known to change their body size to cope with the warmer climate. Researchers have now examined new ways animals have been coping with, by changing their physical features. Researchers have found animals have been changing the size of their beaks, tails, ears and appendages. 2SER was joined by Dr Matthew Symonds, Associate Professor in Evolutionary Ecology from Deakin University to discuss this widespread pattern.
