Does extreme weather alter animal populations permanently?

    In most cases, no. Animals of prone areas–the Caribbean (hurricanes), the Pacific (tsunamis), North America (tornadoes)–are, for the most part, accustomed to such occurrences. Bird populations survive hurricanes, and life always seems to return. Extreme weather is a part of life that animals can usually adapt to. However, there are cases such as volcanic eruptions, ice ages, drought, etc. where the environment is permanently altered or altered for such a long period of time that life cannot adapt quickly enough. But, for the most part, animals are pretty resilient.
