Ecological Impacts of Climate Change

Curated Collections

The ecological impacts of climate change are broad and diverse, altering species' range limits, plant phenology and growth, carbon and nutrient cycling, as well as biodiversity and extinction risk. Over the past year, PLOS has published a wide range of research on the ecological impacts of climate change. The breadth of topics includes everything from impacts of climate change on the immune competency of marine mammals to the global distribution of mosquito borne-diseases and their hosts. This collection also includes some recent research modeling and analyzing the global ecological impacts of climate change as well as the synthesis of datasets from literature in two new systematic reviews. PLOS journals recognize the importance in publishing and highlighting climate change research, and we thank our authors for their significant contributions to this field.
