To better understand retilian response to climate change, an international team of researchers closely examined how a warmer climate of just two-degrees celsius would affect populations of common lizards (Zootoca vivipara) over time. Since a reptile's body temperature depends directly on the atmospheric temperature, researchers predict that lizards......
