Moth Studies Suggest Hidden Climate Changes

Researches in Finland suggest that scientists may be underestimating the impacts of global warming on plants and animals. Researchers studied 80 different moth species and found that 90 percent of these moths were stable. this study was taken from 178 to 2009. During this study, the study site rose 3.5 degrees Fahrenheit. At first someone might think that moths going up de to warmer temperatures is a good thing. But ecologist Mark Hunter says otherwise. He says “every time the weather was warm or increased it had a negative impact on the moths”. This means that there must have been another factor leading to the growth of the moth population. This raises the question of how many other ecological forces are counteracting the effects of global warming.
