USA Today Magazine;Aug2008, Vol. 137 Issue 2759, p7
The article reports on a study which showed that a vast array of physical and biological systems across the Earth are being affected by warming temperatures caused by humans. The effects on living things include earlier leafing of trees and plants over many regions, movements of species to higher latitudes and altitudes in the Northern Hemisphere, changes in bird migrations in Europe, Australia, and North America and shifting of the oceans' plankton and fish from cold- to warm-adapted communities.
