Temperature Increases, Goat Body Size Decreases
According to Phys, research from Durham University suggests that climate change is real and has real consequences, such as making Alpine goats smaller. Researchers studied the goats, formally known as Alpine Chamois, for 30 years. Amazingly, the current goats are 25 percent smaller in body size than their counterparts of the same age in the 1980s. This shrinking trend is nothing new; many species are already getting smaller because of climate change.
However, this research is intriguing because of the magnitude and speed of this change. Researchers also noted that this change…
