This blog post is provided by Abigail Kimmitt and Daniel Becker and tells the #StoryBehindthePaper for the paper “Plasticity in female timing may explain earlier breeding in a North American songbird“, which was recently published in the Journal of Animal Ecology. In their study, they explored breeding success of the dark-eyed junco from long term datasets, to see if birds respond to climate change in … Continue reading Are multi-brooded birds the current “winners” of climate change?

Anthropogenic climate change is rapidly transforming environments and poses a major threat to species and ecosystems worldwide. Understanding how animal populations respond to these changing environments is crucial for developing conservation and mitigation strategies as global temperatures continue to rise. It is now becoming increasingly feasible to generate data at genome and population-wide scales for many species, including those at the greatest risk from the … Continue reading Open call for papers: Special Feature on understanding climate change response in the age of genomics
