Are you a gardener? Then you know that particular species and varieties of species grow best in certain growing zones related to climate. This growing zone concept also applies to species in natural ecosystems. One threat of climate change to wetland biodiversity is that some species may be losing the ability to track an appropriate season for flowering, seed production, and growth, impairing their ability to regenerate. Based on genetic constraints, such species may have a limited ability to adjust to changing climates.
