Ecology: A Matter Of Timing, Science
Excerpts: Climate change is causing shifts in the distribution and phenology of many plants and animals. Birds have played a key role in detecting these changes, because long-term data are available on the distribution, migration, and breeding of many species. Studies of the timing of egg laying--a key trait with extensive records dating back half a century for some species--are providing crucial insights into the mechanisms that underlie the response to climate change.
