Climate change and weeds

Resources |

When the climate changes, some species benefit and others lose out. This is the case with exotic weeds as well as native species.

So, with global warming, might a balance of sorts be struck, with those weeds at the limits of their heat tolerance being pushed back while those that tolerate warmer conditions expanding?

That might be the case if climate change just involved increases in mean temperatures, but it is far more complicated than that.
