Climate changes present unexpected and unwanted weather patterns that affect both plants and animals in the environment. Most of the climatic changes have resulted from activities on land which lead to pollution and land degradation. Global warming has also resulted from climatic changes that have taken place in different parts of the world. However, climate changes comprise many other effects apart from global warming which affects the lives of flora and fauna. Some of the weather patterns experienced today show changes from the normal because they range from one extreme to the other. W. & Nuccitelli, D.
