    Nature Confused By Climate Changes

    5 plants and animals utterly confused by climate change

    “Every year, as the seasons change…species stay in sync with each other by relying on environmental cues…[But not all species are adjusting to this the changing climate] at the same rate…[S]ome are falling out of step…[Scientists call this] phenological mismatch…[The early spider orchid] tricks solitary male bees into thinking the plant is a mating partner — a key step for pollination…[W]ith spring coming earlier, female bees are now emerging sooner and luring the male bees away from the lovelorn orchid…[In Finland,] the Northern lapwing and Eurasian curlew have usually built their ground nests on barley fields after farmers have sown their crops in the spring.
