Just like humans, animal and plant species are responding to a changing climate- either by moving, adapting or dying. We talk with conservation biologist Thor Hanson about changes we’re seeing in the plant and animal kingdom and the ripple effect these changes could have on the ecosystem. Hanson’s latest book is titled Hurricane Lizards and Plastic Squid, the Fraught and Fascinating Biology of Climate Change.
