The impacts of global warming are of concern to all of us. The potential responses of birds to climate change have come increasingly to the fore, and are of particular interest to the ornithological community. Are birds sensitive to climate change and how will they react to a world of global warming?
These are the key issues to be explored in this book, with particular reference to Western Palearctic birds. Climate changes that have affected the region in the last twenty million years will be explored, drawing on published data on fossil birds. A major part of the book will be devoted to the distribution of Western Palearctic birds in relation to bio-climate. The final section of the book looks at migration and the relationship of the Western Palearctic to Africa.
