Url: http://ewradio.org/program.aspx?ProgramID=4132
Creator: Katt-Reinders, Elizabeth
Publisher: University of Wisconsin--Madison. Sea Grant College Program
Description: Although temperatures are predicted to rise the most in northern latitudes due to global warming, tropical plants and animals might have the most difficult time adapting to climate change. This radio broadcast explains how temperature varies by only a couple of degrees annually in the tropics, and organisms there have a narrow range of temperature tolerance. The clip is 2 minutes in length and is available in MP3 format.
