Species moving fast because of climate change

According to Cleantechies : “A new study finds that animal and plant species are responding to the effects of climate change at a rate two to three times faster than previously believed.

Researchers in the Department of Biology at the University of York in the United Kingdom found that in more than 2,000 instances, species are changing their habitats to adapt to warming temperatures.

On average, they found that species are moving toward higher elevations at 12.2 meters (40 feet) per decade and toward the poles at 17.6 kilometers (11 miles) per decade.”
