A new study suggests that marsupials, such as kangaroos and koalas, are more resilient to climate change than previously thought. Researchers found that these animals have unique traits that allow them to adapt to changing environments. Marsupials have a slower metabolism, which helps them conserve energy during times of food scarcity. They are also able to tolerate higher body temperatures, which is advantageous in warmer climates. This new insight into the resilience of marsupials could help scientists develop strategies for conservation and management of other species in the face of climate change.
