Seasonal changes in temperature, rainfall and sunlight hours are reflected in related variations in the breeding and flowering patterns of organisms. Climate change is resulting in shifts in the timing of some these patterns, potentially resulting in a mismatch between predators’ food requirements and the availability of food. Zepeng Sun investigates how the existing synchronicity in species interactions between consumers (predators) and the organisms they feed off are affected by these shifts.
