Global wind patterns and the vulnerability of wind-dispersed species to climate change

Nature Climate Change, Published online: 20 July 2020; doi:10.1038/s41558-020-0848-3

Wind patterns could enhance or hinder the ability of organisms reliant on wind-driven dispersal and pollination to shift their ranges under climate change. Organisms in the tropics and on the leeward side of mountains may be particularly at risk due to scarcity of suitable, wind-accessible sites.
