FYI: another interesting article

I know that this will interest a few people that follow my blog, so I thought I’d just put a shout out.

Corey just put up a post to let people know that he and some others have just had an article published online in Journal of Animal Ecology: Mechanisms driving change: altered species interactions and ecosystem function through global warming. He discusses it here.

In the article, they review the links between species under warming changing conditions, rather than the species’ responses. Pretty interesting and certainly of increasing importance as we truck along into not only a new millennia but also a new climate…. anyway, it’s worth a read.

  1. Great link, this is the stuff I’m interested in. How climate change impacts the environment. And you’ve also pointed me to another great blog.

    So many great blogs out there, so little time!

    1. lol – there are a lot of great blogs out there. Corey’s ConservationBytes blog and Barry’s BraveNewClimate blog are excellent and far better researched than mine (hell, their both professors with years of research, I’m a tech with and ecological degree!).
      I’m the same; I’m very interested in all the interactions; both ecological and human land use. There is an amazing amount of (depressing) change occurring around us which is, for the most ignored.
      What troubles me the most is idiots like Monckton, Watts, Nova etc who’s pointless acts of self-promotion not only hinder changes in energy supply, but also allow the bulk of our species to remain in the dark about a whole host of environmental and economic issues that are hitting us or will increasingly do so in the coming decades.
      As you’ve said in a previous post on your blog, they illustrate denial, not scepticism. They’re views will not be changed and they’re well funded to trot around the globe spreading misinformation. They can’t be entertained.
      I think the only way to make headway on this age of denial is to show the reality outside of the built up areas where most of us live (for, at this point, it is these built up areas that show the least amount of change).
