PAPER: Tropical and temperate species are living well together under climate change

As our¬†climate changes, many terrestrial and marine species are forced to extend their ranges poleward, to stay within the bounds of their thermal tolerances. However, when such species enter higher latitude ecosystems, they engage in innovative interactions with local […]
