Effect of climate change on the Neotropics

Whereas my last posts have looked into the findings of a single paper, this post will include research from several. These will cover the effects of climate change (Korstjens & Hillyer, 2016; Ribeiro et al. 2020); including a deeper look into its’ effect on primate metapopulations (Wiederholt & Post 2010), and a case study lookingContinue reading “Effect of climate change on the Neotropics”

Part Two: Vulnerability One of the major issues for conservation is trying to determine which species needs conserving more urgently. Vulnerability, in special regard to climate change, is complex and all theContinue reading “Primates and climate change: A review of current knowledge”

Source: Korstjens, A. H., & Hillyer, A. P. (2016). Primates and climate change: A review of current knowledge. An introduction to primate conservation, 175-192. Part One: Impacts As I wrote about in my last post about assessing vulnerability (Graham et al, 2016), we know that climate change will affect both temperature and precipitation. Whilst scientists areContinue reading “Primates and climate change: A review of current knowledge.”

Assessing primate exposure and vulnerability to climate change

A global-scale evaluation of primate exposure and vulnerability to climate change.¬†International Journal of Primatology,¬†37(2), 158-174. Climate change could have catastrophic impacts on animal populations, in fact, I’d go as far to say that it’s a slow-moving extinction event. In response to this, organisationsContinue reading “Assessing primate exposure and vulnerability to climate change”
