bird migration and global change - a highly recommended book
Highly recommended. Bird Migration and Global Change. George W. Cox. Island Press.
If you care about birds, I recommend reading this book. After reading it, I doubt that you will question the need for urgency in dealing with climate change.
From the Island Press website:
"Changes in seasonal movements and population dynamics of migratory birds in response to ongoing changes resulting from global climate changes are a topic of great interest to conservation scientists and birdwatchers around the world. Because of their dependence on specific habitats and resources in different geographic regions at different phases of their annual cycle, migratory species are especially vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.
In Bird Migration and Global Change, eminent ecologist George W. Cox brings his extensive experience as a scientist and bird enthusiast to bear in evaluating the capacity of migratory birds to adapt to the challenges of a changing climate."
