Study: Global warming is pushing alpine animals to mountain peaks — and extinction

This article discusses how global warming is pushing alpine animals to mountain peaks — and extinction.

Alpine animals are being pushed higher up their mountain habitats at an alarming rate due to global warming, according to a new B.C. study.

The trend puts both plants and animals at greater risk for extinction because there is often less space at high altitudes, which can drastically reduce populations, according to Ben Freeman, lead author of the paper published in Global Ecology and Biogeography.
