Lemurs and giant tortoises among species at risk if global warming reaches 3°C
More than 200 studies looked at the impacts of climate change on terrestrial ecosystems, whereas just over 30 looked at marine ecosystems. Only 14 studies looked at freshwater species – considered to be among the most threatened – which were included in terrestrial ecosystems due to lack of data.
Dr Rob Salguero-Gómez, a zoologist at the University of Oxford who was not involved in the study, said the primary findings were not new and “quite logical”. He said the study’s use of a large volume of peer-reviewed literature provided a comprehensive, global understanding of the situation.
