What makes an animal large or small? Part of it may be due to climate change. It may be that these are reactions to rapidly rising temperatures due to global climate change according to Professor Yoram Yom-Tov of Tel Aviv University, who has been measurin

Makes a lot of sense. Thank you for posting the article. We will probably see human beings adapting over a long period of time to the changes too. All creatures need to for survival.

Again ... Adaptation or Extinction!

"In his most recent paper, Prof. Yom-Tov and his Tel Aviv University colleague Prof. Eli Geffen report that arctic foxes are being influenced by changing water currents in the oceans. These changes, likely a result of climate change, affects the foxesí food supplies. Hydrologists may be unsure as to why the shifts in currents are happening, but the effect in foxes is evident: their bodies are changing along with the changing currents."

Scientific proof of Climate Change once again! If it's affecting our animal relations then just 'imagine' how it is affecting and will continue to affect the human race, already overpopulating our planet!

Thanks Cal!

Yes. I fully agree. Struggle for existence and survival of the fittest, that is the law of Nature and adaptation is an important phenomenon for being and lasting HERE.

Hi,
Humans have already destroyed many of the natural migrations of animals....

Thanks for the article Cal. This is very logical and something I have seen on many of the nature shows I watch on PBS for some time now.

Adaption is important for survival of any species.

We probably will NOT see humans adapting over time, Taylor, since humans have taken themselves out of the natural world and moved into an unnatural one.

For example, we keep the weak and unfit alive when, were they on their own "in the wild," they would die. These people reproduce and create more weak and unfit individuals which are then preserved by medicine, science, etc.

Millions of years ago, we were much stronger and more fit for survival than we are now, but living in an "assisted" world, we no longer evolve for the better.
