ALEX GILMAN'S RESEARCH FEATURED IN SCIENCE
Even tropical plant and animal species living in some of the warmest places on Earth may face threats from a warming planet, according to new research co-authored by Alex Gilman (PhD. in the laboratory of Professor Philip Rundel, UCLA Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, 2007). Dr. Gilman and her colleagues collected data on the altitudinal ranges of nearly 2,000 plant and insect species living on the forested slopes of a Costa Rican volcano that rises some 10,000 feet. They found that about half the species have such narrow altitudinal ranges that a 2,000-foot uphill shift caused by warming temperatures would move them beyond the upper limits of their current ranges. Their research appears in the Oct. 10 edition of Science magazine.
