Tim Perez, James Stroud and Ken Feeley published a new Perspectives article in Science Magazine entitled “Thermal Trouble in the Tropics”. The article explains why tropical species are at extra risk of extinction under climate change compared to their temperate counterparts. They also discuss the need for additional studies of tropical plant species and their climatic tolerances. A copy of the article is available HERE.
Ken Feeley discussed the article during a radio interview with John Batchelor. A podcast of the interview is available to download or listen to HERE.
