Studies in plant phenology have provided some of the best evidence for large-scale responses to recent climate change. Over the last decade, more than thirty studies have used herbarium specimens to analyze changes in flowering phenology over time. In this review,...

Although most reef-building corals live near the upper threshold of their thermotolerance, some scleractinians are resilient to temperature increases. For instance, Pocillopora acuta specimens from an upwelling habitat in Southern Taiwan survived a 9-month experimental...

Studies investigating changes in community composition in response to recent global warming are mostly restricted to one-dimensional (e.g. elevational or latitudinal) gradients, whereas species movements are in reality three dimensional (i.e. elevational, latitudinal...
