Rise of the Mutant Canadian Rodents

Mice in Canada are mutating and migrating farther north in response to climate change, according to McGill University research released Monday.

The study -- published in the journal Evolutionary Ecology -- found that "milder winters have led to physical alterations in two species of mice in southern Quebec in the past 50 years", lead researcher Virginie Millien said in a statement.

It also adds to evidence that "warming temperatures are pushing wildlife north", she said.

Comparing data from as far back as the 1950s, researchers also discovered that the skull shape of both species had changed over time.
