The evolution of animals in the face of climate change

99

Contemporary climate change poses the challenges of animal adaptation. Here are some examples:

1. Bird migration: Birds move migration routes or delay arrival, adapting to changing conditions.

2. Butterfly Melanization: The growth of dark butterfly varieties helps them survive through better heat absorption.

3. Accelerated fish reproduction: In warmer waters, fish reproduce faster, which affects fish stocks.

4. The shape of the frog’s frog: The frogs in the cities adjust the shapes of the crabs to better extract food.

Evolution is a difficult process and not all species are able to adapt in time. Therefore, the protection of biodiversity and the fight against climate change are crucial for the future of our planet.
