Mediterranean earthworm species found thriving in Ireland as global temperatures rise

Scientists at the University College Dublin have published a report in Biology Letters reporting on their discovery of how the earthworm, Prosellodrilus amplisetosus is extending its habitat. The worms have moved from the Mediterranean region to an urban farm in Dublin, Ireland. The scientists attribute this extension of their geographical locale to rising soil temperatures potentially associated with climate change.
