Can Species Evolve Rapidly Enough to Adapt to Climate Change?
February 14 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
The world around us is warming rapidly, jeopardizing the existence of many species. In the past, species would shift their geographic ranges, moving northward or higher up when conditions warmed, and in the opposite direction in times of cooling. But climate change is occurring more rapidly than in times past, and now many obstacles—cities, highways, agricultural fields—make range shifts difficult. The only other options are to adapt or perish. Can species evolve rapidly enough to adapt to these new conditions?
