Description:

This intriguing and informative interview highlights the keypoints in the climate change/ speciation debate. Whether climate change is a major factor in speciation, the author explains that new species of mammals evolve when significant climate change persists over very long periods of time, when mammals cant move to habitats that provide favorable climate, climate change leads to evolutionary changes or extinction, and fossils provide clues that can help predict effects on species in the current warming trend.
