    Climate change is drying out eucalyptus leaves, Australian news reported Sunday, which are consequently “losing their ability to hydrate koalas.”

    Australia’s ABC television tweeted support Sunday for its documentary series The Magical Land of Oz, which asserts that the force of “human induced change has been rapid and dramatic,” leaving many animals in dire straits.
    As a result, the koala population is finding it harder to extract enough water from eucalyptus leaves to stay hydrated, the outlet proposes.
    Earlier this month, Amy Yang of New York University, Sydney, wrote that eucalyptus leaves increasingly may no longer hold enough water to keep koalas alive, “as climate change triggers long droughts and intense heatwaves.”
    In her piece titled “Climate Change Leaving Koalas High and Dry,” Ms. Yang said that the current drought in much of eastern Australia is the worst in 400 years and that the resulting conditions “affect koala habitats by drying out the eucalyptus leaves, forcing the native animals to change their water collecting behaviours.”
    All of this, Yang sustains, proceeds from human-induced climate change.
    Yang cites a researcher from the University of Sydney, Valentina Mella, who “has investigated the role of climate change on gum leaves and found that koalas reject the foliage when the leaves have a water content of less than 55% to 65%.”

    Or maybe Ms. Yang doesn't understand how eucalypti may adapt to drought.

    ... the current drought in much of eastern Australia is the worst in 400 years ...
    Since the first colony in Oz was begun in 1788, less than 250 years ago, and Australian weather records are probably very spotty until some time well into the 19th century, that's an obvious statistic-extracted-from-rectum.
