ABSTRACT
The article discusses research on the threat posed by global warming to sensitive animal species. According to the report from the Climate Change and Migratory Species study, sea turtles are under particular threat because their sex is determined by the temperature at which their eggs are incubated, so a rise in temperature could lead to single-sex populations. A third of turtle nesting sites in the Caribbean are also threatened by rising sea levels. According to the report, there is already compelling evidence that shows that migratory species living in Arctic and mountain habitats are experiencing serious problems due to an increase in temperatures.
