In recent years there has been a growing concern about the gradually increasing average global temperatures. If this trend continues, would you expect the distributional range of some species to be affected?

Dear student,
Yes, by increase in average global temperature the distributional range of species would be affected because it can result in migration of plants and animals to a suitable habitat to escape heat. If the suitable habitat is unavailable or is scarce then species may not survive in the harsh condition and die leading to loss of biodiversity which restricts the distributional range of species.

yes it will be affected as the range depends on the temperature and resources
