What are the biological impacts of climate change?

    According to some scientists, we may be on the verge of our planet’s sixth mass extinction. We are losing thousands of species a year. The difference with this mass extinction from previous extinctions is that we’re causing it with climate change and global warming. This is probably the most major biological impact of climate change.

    One biological impact of climate change is that it will affect phenology, which means timing of events. For example, butterfly migrations will begin at a different time of the year if it is starting to get warmer earlier. Plants will flower sooner or later depending on the amount of light. Changes like this will be dangerous if there is an interaction that depends on the right timing. Say butterflies arrive to their migration destination, but the flowers haven’t opened yet. The butterflies could all die because of this miss in timing.
