Plants at risk of extinction as climate crisis disrupts animal migration

Heating and habitat loss drive birds and mammals to cooler areas where plants can not follow, study shows

The decline of seed-dispersing animals is damaging plants’ ability to adapt to climate breakdown, a study has found.

Almost half of all plant species depend on animals to spread their seeds, but scientists fear these plants may be at risk of extinction when animals are driven to migrate to cooler areas, as plants cannot easily follow.
