Many species of mammals in Yosemite National Park have shifted their home ranges to higher elevations over the last hundred years. A research team led by Craig Moritz at the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology of the University of California, Berkeley,... Read More

Over time, warming events in Greenland and the North Atlantic were followed by gradual cooling. These changes correlate well with the concentration of nitrous oxide found in ice core samples. Antarctic temperature variations, on the other hand, were... Read More

Recently, multiple NSF-funded researchers have documented genetic changes resulting from climate change. These studies suggest that extreme variation in temperature and rainfall are causing genetic shifts in organisms with short life spans.
We need to use more renewable resources as opposed to burning fossil fuels for obtaining energy. Global warming is clearly in effect, causing each summer to be warmer than the last. To adapt to a warmer world we will need to reduce the burning of... Read More

Decadal fluctuations in ocean salinity, nutrients, chlorophyll, a variety of zooplankton species, and fish stocks in the Northeast Pacific have been unexplained for many years. They are often poorly correlated with the most widely used indicator of... Read More

While investigating the effects of climate change on nitrogen cycling in temperate coastal systems, Rhode Island researchers made the first scientific link between warming and fundamental changes in nutrient cycles. Researchers found that the... Read More
