There are a number of ways that climate change is beginning to impact wildlife. Temperature increases and changes in precipitation can directly affect species depending on their physiology and tolerance of environmental changes. Climate change can also alter a species' food supply or its reproductive timing, indirectly affecting its fitness. Understanding these interactions is an important step in developing management strategies to help species survive the changing climate. (Source CCRC).
