Climate Change driving animals to the Poles?

Ocean warming is forcing marine life closer to the cooler waters of the poles, but the location of terrestrial species seems to be as yet unaffected.

A research team reviewed a century of experiments where 169 cold-blooded species were heated or cooled to the point they stopped functioning. The team compared these temperatures to the temperatures where the species actually live.

It was found that many land animals could withstand higher temperatures than the areas they currently inhabit, but their lack of movement could be attributed to other factors such as the availability of water.
