Extinction risks from climate change: macroecological and historical insights
2009 (English)In: F1000 Biology Reports , ISSN 1740-4118, Vol. 1, 44- p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Human-induced climate change may threaten a large proportion of Earth's biota, but the uncertainties involved in projecting the future geographical distributions of species make quantitative predictions of extinction risk difficult to make. I discuss how insight from recent advances in macroecology and knowledge about species responses to past climate change can help predict extinction risks more accurately.
