Estimating Trends for Antarctic Birds in Relation to Climate Change

Part of the Statistics for Biology and Health book series (SBH)

Abstract

The earth’s climate is changing rapidly and these changes are expected to affect the structure and functioning of ecosystems. It is now clearly established that recent climate changes have impacted on living organisms. Several studies have demonstrated changes in population abundance, geographic distribution, and even microevolutionary changes in relation to climatic fluctuations (Parmesan, 2006).
