Effects of climate change on insects

Animal life cycle

The changes in the climate force wildlife to alter life cycle and seasonal events.  Sometimes they might get out of synch with other species in their ecosystem or with other natural events. For example, some animals are laying eggs, migrating, or emerging from hibernation much earlier than they used to, only to find that the plants or the insects they need for food have not yet emerged.
