Climate change drives collapse in marine food webs

A new study has found that levels of commercial fish stocks could be harmed as rising sea temperatures affect their source of food. University of Adelaide scientists have demonstrated how climate change can drive the collapse of marine “food webs”. To be published on 10 January in the open access journal PLOS Biology, the study’s […]

Media release: Temporary extinction reprieve for some frogs

Australian scientists have good news for frog conservation ─ there may be longer than expected time to intervene before climate change causes extinction of some species. The scientists used new methods for modelling the threat of climate change on frogs in tropical north-eastern Australia and showed that, at least for some species, there is likely […]

World’s rarest cat under threat from a changing climate.

A new international study including members of the Environment Institute, Damien Fordham and Barry Brook, has found the world’s most endangered cat species, the Iberian lynx, could be driven to extinction within 50 years due to climate change. Published today in Nature Climate Change, “We show that climate change could lead to a rapid and […]

New Paper: Climate change and the cockatoo

A new paper titled ‘Managing the long-term persistence of a rare cockatoo under climate change‘ investigates using combined population and bioclimatic models to estimate the future effects of climate change on the viability of a cockatoo population. Their research revealed that unmitigated climate change is likely to be a substantial threat to the cockatoo. The […]
