Biodiversity and Climate Change

Biodiversity and Climate Change : Transforming the Biosphere


Edited by Thomas E. Lovejoy and Lee Hannah (2019)

The physical and biological impacts of climate change are dramatic and broad-ranging. People who care about the planet and manage natural resources urgently need a synthesis of our rapidly growing understanding of these issues. In this all-new sequel to the 2005 volume Climate Change and Biodiversity, leading experts in the field summarize observed changes, assess what the future holds, and offer suggested responses. From extinction risk to ocean acidification, from the future of the Amazon to changes in ecosystem services, and from geoengineering to the power of ecosystem restoration, this book captures the potential of climate change to transform the biosphere. —Publisher.
