One of the best documented impacts of climate change has been on the seasonal timing, or phenology, of species. There are clear shifts in all taxonomic groups in terrestrial, aquatic, and marine environments. There is, however, ample variation in the rate at which species shift in response to warmer temperatures. As a consequence, phenological mismatches may occur, in which the phenology of one species no longer matches that of another species, for instance, in predator–prey systems. These mismatches can have an impact on the viability of populations and thereby on biodiversity.
