Symbolic picture for the article. The link opens the image in a large view.

Prof. Wolfgang Kiessling, Chair of Paleobiology, and Tasnuva Ming Khan, also from the field of Paleobiology, together with scientists from South Africa, England, Brazil, Norway, Trinidad and India, have succeeded in finding that a third of all endemic species living in rural areas are threatened to become extinct at a global warming of more than three degrees Celsius.

Several journals (The Guardian, Carbon Brief, Zeit Online) and broadcasts (CBS News, Interview by Deutschlandfunk with Prof. Wolfgang Kiessling) from all over the world dedicate their own research to this study.
