Sierra Magazine: An ark for amphibians
“Alexis Mychajliw, a paleoecologist at Middlebury College, points out that plants and animals aren’t stationary beings, and during past climate change events, they moved themselves. “The history of most species is movement,” Mychajliw said. “When the climate changes, they tend to follow those conditions.””
“In the meantime, while it’s heartening to imagine how different species might bounce back in millions of years, “you don’t want to stop investing in the life that’s around us today,” said Mychajliw, the Middlebury paleoecologist. “There’s a lot we can do right now to ensure that we protect species, protect their genetic diversity, and protect their ability to respond to change.””
