Size and age of plants impact their productivity more than climate, study shows
The size and age of plants has more of an impact on their productivity than temperature and precipitation, according to a landmark study by University of Arizona researchers. View News Article (2014-07-21)

Precipitation, not warming temperatures, may be key in bird adaptation to climate change
A new model analyzing how birds in western North America will respond to climate change suggests that for most species, regional warming is not as likely to influence population trends as will precipitation changes. View News Article (2014-07-14)

Low back pain? Don't blame the weather
Australian researchers reveal that sudden, acute episodes of low back pain are not linked to weather conditions such as temperature, humidity, air pressure, wind direction and precipitation. View News Article (2014-07-10)

With climate change, heat more than natural disasters will drive people away
Although scenes of people fleeing from dramatic displays of Mother Nature's power dominate the news, gradual increases in an area's overall temperature - and to a lesser extent precipitation - actually lead more often to permanent population shifts, according to Princeton University research. View News Article (2014-07-01)

Iconic Minnesota conifers may give way to a more broad-leafed forest in the next century
Over the next 100 years, Minnesota's iconic boreal forest and deep snow may change into a deciduous forest with winters warm enough for some precipitation to fall as rain, according to a new U.S. Forest Service assessment of the vulnerability of Minnesota forests to climate change. View News Article (2014-06-20)

Dryland ecosystems emerge as driver in global carbon cycle
Dryland ecosystems, which include deserts to dry-shrublands, play a more important role in the global carbon cycle than previously thought.  View News Article (2014-05-22)

How does snow affect the amount of water in rivers?
New research has shown for the first time that the amount of water flowing through rivers in snow-affected regions depends significantly on how much of the precipitation falls as snowfall. This means in a warming climate, if less of the precipitation falls as snow, rivers will discharge less water than they currently do. View News Article (2014-05-19)

Moth study suggests hidden climate change impacts
A 32-year study of subarctic forest moths in Finnish Lapland suggests that scientists may be underestimating the impacts of climate change on animals and plants because much of the harm is hidden from view. View News Article (2014-04-15)

Warming Climate Has Consequences for Michigan's Forests
In the last 100 years, Michigan has become warmer, with more rain coming through heavy downpours. View News Article (2014-04-14)

Warming Climate May Spread Drying to a Third of Earth, Says Study
Increasing heat is expected to extend dry conditions to far more farmland and cities by the end of the century than changes in rainfall alone, says a new study. View News Article (2014-04-01)
