  1. Heather Stockdale Walden:

    In Florida, we are finding it in both native and non-native snail species, and some of these snails have geographic ranges that extend well beyond Florida.

  2. Gavin Naylor:

    We found evidence from jaws collected in Bangladesh that the genetic sequence of them is different from anything described. But we don’t have a specimen, it’s completely different than any of the others. So, there is a species out there that we don’t know about.

  3. Govind Bisht:

    These trees, such as oak, rhododendron and the kharsu (an endemic species), are primarily responsible for groundwater recharging, but they are fast vanishing, being cut, whether for timber or for so-called 'developmental works' such as roads or tourist resorts.

  4. Kate Wilson:

    The biggest one we've caught is the size of a dinner plate, that's the crazy thing about domestic aquatic pets, you have them in your aquarium and they are this cute little thing and then you release it into the wild and that constraint of size and food is gone and because of that some of these species can get really big.

  5. Sara Ryding:

    It means animals are evolving, but it does not necessarily mean that they are coping with climate change. We can see that some species have increased in appendage size so far, but we don't know if they will be able to keep up as the climate crisis worsens, we also don't know whether these shape-shifts actually aid in survival( and therefore are beneficial) or not. This phenomenon of shape-shifting shouldn't be seen as a positive, but rather it is alarming that climate change is pushing animals to evolve like this, under such a relatively short timeframe.
