Lack of varied seasons and temperatures in tropical mountains have led to species that are highly adapted to narrow niches, but also to ones more vulnerable to rapid climate changes. SNR

Study reveals why tropical mountains are so biodiverse

Lack of varied seasons and temperatures in tropical mountains have led to species that are highly adapted to narrow niches, but also to ones more vulnerable to rapid climate changes. SNR's Steven Thomas contributes to new research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.  (11/20/2018)
