Climate change: Species climbing higher and migrating north, study says

Most interesting to me, from a land-use law perspective, is the impact on conservation easements that were written to protect certain rare species. There are conservation areas owned by government set aside to protect rare and endangered species. Well, what happens to the property when, say, a rare, protected turtle decides to move and migrate north? 

The study of 1,376 species of plant, animals, and insects found that,

"…warming climate is driving species toward higher latitudes at an average of nearly twice the pace that studies indicated in 2003. And species are migrating to higher altitudes nearly three times faster."
