Animals’ bodies change to adapt to climate crisis

Posted on: Thu 9 Sep 2021

Many animals, not unlike humans, have highly regulated internal body temperatures.

Climate change has already begun to impact our wildlife in a range of ways including causing difficulty with that regulation, and new research has shown a quite unusual way of coping, by changing their body shape.

Evolutionary ecologist and associate professor at Deakin University Matthew Symonds discusses this research with Breakfast’s Zoe Kounadis and Tom Mann.
