How is global warming affecting the reproduction of insects?



  1. 0 Votes

    Many insects are expanding in number and reproductive rates are getting higher. As the climate warms, some species of insect are able to live in places which were previously uninhabitable for them. Mosquitos, for example, are breeding more quickly and malaria is spreading in regions which did not have malaria until recently. Scientists believe global warming is the cause of the increasing spread of malaria. The warmer weather also speeds up metabolic rates for many insects, allowing them to reproduce and evolve faster than before.
