  • Effects of Global Warming
    • Enzyme activity
      • Increase the rate or reaction or cause enzymes to denature
        • Effects growth and reproduction
          • EXTINCTION
    • Species sensitive to change in temperature
      • Could decrease abundance of insects, vital pollinators
        • Affects plant reproduction
          • EXTINCTION
      • Abundance increase
        • More than one breeding cycle can fit in so population increase population
          • Effects onset on seasons due to climate change
      • Sex of offspring determined by temperature.
      • Effects onset on seasons due to climate change
      • Species distribution
        • Abundance increase
          • More than one breeding cycle can fit in so population increase population
        • New predator-prey relationships - out-competed.
          • Thinning  of ice and warmer temps exapnds water = flooding
          • Climate =  extreme weather and changes in rainfall weather patterns.
            • Species distribution
            • Spread of diseases due to warmer temps like Malaria
