Dr. Camille Parmesan, a professor of Biology at The University of Texas at Austin, has been internationally recognized for her work on global warming. Most of her work has centered around the effects of climate change on wildlife, particularly on butterflies.

"Where an animal exists, the area that it occupies on this planet, is often driven by climate. So, as North America warms, a lot of species are going to tend to move up towards Canada and up the mountains."
