Climate Change

Biological, Phenological Changes

The following is a list of papers dealing specifically with observed changes in the biology and/or phenology of a wide range of animal and plant species mostly, but also fungi, bacteria and viruses. Every paper is from ISI listed journals and has been through the rigours of peer review. Where access to the full text of each is free I have provided the link. Where a subscription is required I have provided a link to the abstract only. Compiling this list is an ongoing process and I will endeavour to add to it continually.

  2. thank you for all your efforts that you have put in this. Very interesting info. “Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither.” by Clive Staples Lewis.

  3. Is it fine to insert a portion of this on my personal site if I post a reference point to this web page?

    Wow that’s a lot of peer reviewed evidence showing that the earths climate changes. I learned that the climate continually changes in high school, back in the 1970′s. If only I had known then that you can get paid for something taken straight out of high school text books, I could have made a bundle. Gravity is still in high school textbooks, I wonder if I can make money proving gravity exists?

    • You can join the circus and get paid for proving clowns exist klem. I recommend reading one or two of those papers and then commenting on some technical aspect them. On this blog human induced climate change is not in dispute. The scientific evidence for it is overwhelming. If you have overwhelming scientific evidence to the contrary, provide it. If not, take your idiocy elsewhere bozo.

    Thanks for the list. This was what I exactly was looking for.
