Australian birds feel heat of climate change

Australian birds feel heat of climate change

Ever wondered how pigeons are able to function quite happily on extremely hot days while other birds are nowhere to be seen?

University of Adelaide researchers are contributing to a large international study aiming to advance the understanding of how different groups of birds tolerate and respond to heat stress.

“Interestingly, from the data we have collected so far, the physiological limits and the behavioural adaptations of different groups of birds appear to be related.  For example, pigeons are able to tolerate the highest temperatures and were also found to not reduce their activity in hot weather.  We hope to be able to explain this link between physiological and behavioural adaptations,” he says.
