COAT OF ARMOUR
A new study in Science has identi ied Arctic regions where animals a ected by climate change may be able to adapt their way out. Weasels, hares and Arctic foxes have a winter colour (white) and a summer colour (brown). If the snow melts early, which happens more often, stillwhite animals could be more vulnerable to predators. But where white and brown coexist, there’s potential for rapid evolution.
