Putting wind dispersal in context

Nature Climate Change, Published online: 20 July 2020; doi:10.1038/s41558-020-0858-1

Climate change will lead to geographic shifts in global habitats, forcing plant populations to migrate or perish. Model-based analysis for wind-dispersed plants under future climate conditions show the importance of considering both ‘where to go’, in terms of the desired temperature, and ‘how to get there’, in terms of wind speed and direction.
