Scottish badgers highlight the complexity of species responses to environmental change

Source: Science Daily

In a new study researchers have found that although warmer weather should benefit badger populations, the predicted human population increase in the Scottish highlands is likely to disturb badgers and counteract that effect. These results emphasize the importance of interactive effects and context-dependent responses when planning conservation management under human-induced rapid environmental change.
