Koalas threatened by climate change

Breaking Earth News
The koala is under threat from climate change, according to new research which shows rising carbon dioxide levels are killing nutrients in the plants they eat and increasing toxic nutrients. Lab tests have revealed that global warming is stripping the goodness from eucalypt leaves, and the koalas that rely on them don't have enough time to adapt to the change. "I'm sure we'll see koalas disappearing from their current range even though we don't see any change in tree species or structure of the forests...I would've thought a few years ago when we first did these experiments that you might see something in a hundred years. But at the rate at which things are going, I suspect that we might see changes within our lifetime."
