Responses of Black Grouse in the French Alps to Global Warming

August 2011
CO2 Science;8/31/2011, Vol. 14 Issue 35, p4
The article discusses the effects of climate change on Black Grouse in the French Alps. It references a study by J.-Y. Barnagaud et al. published in the "Journal of Ornithology" in 2011. Censuses of adult and young Black Grouse from 1990 to 2007 were used in the study. The study found that Black Grouse populations have stabilized despite the threat of climate warming. The results are said to have shown the capability of Black Grouse to track climate changes without affecting their reproduction.
