Although the effects of climate on species richness are known, regional processes
may lead to different species richness–climate relationships across continents
In this article, we examine how the general public in the United States has viewed global warming over the past decade, identifying important trends in public understanding of global warming,
The devastating impacts of historical changes in atmospheric conditions demonstrate to scientists how precarious our current situation is, underscoring the need for immediate action to prevent further climate change.
