    Description

    Due to increased temperatures and shifts in precipitation patterns associated with climate change, bioclimatic zones that provide habitat for many species are expected to expand, contract, disappear, shift poleward, or move towards higher elevations (WGA 2008). Species will respond to changing climate and disturbance regimes individually, with some species moving quickly, others taking longer to move, and finally those incapable of keeping pace, which can lead to extinction (IPCC 2002; Chen et al. 2011).
