How does temperature affect breeding patterns?

    Temperature has a direct effect on breeding patterns in animals. Amphibians for instance have been breeding less due to the increases in temperature. They are sensitive to extreme weather and remain inactive during periods of extreme heat or severe cold.

    Warmer temperatures earlier in the year can also cause species to start breeding earlier, and in greater numbers. For instance, global warming has increased the overall temperature of the ocean, which is a major contribution to the jellyfish blooms that are occuring today. This has become a problem as the increasing population of jellyfish is slowly driving out other aquatic species and interfering with the delicate ecosystems.
