Science behind Species Selection


Most endangered or threatened species have declined due to a variety of human-derived stressors, including habitat degradation and loss, overharvesting, invasive species, pollution, and climate change. In other words, the species highlighted by Fossilized Houston are not threatened solely due to climate change effects (e.g., elevated temperatures, increased frequency and severity of storm events, drought, etc). To identify climate-threatened species for this project, we relied on a variety of sources.
