Editorial Reviews

Review

"Climate Change and Biodiversity provides the up-to-the-minute overview of this complex global interaction. It is a book of monumental importance to present to future generations and is a keystone work for science, policy and public understanding alike. Anyone concerned about the future of our planet and humanity needs this book." Bruce Babbitt, former U.S. Secretary of the Interior "A well-written treatise on the past, present, and future effects of climate change on plant and animal biodiversity... It is destined to become a classic." Choice "This book makes a timely contribution in an important area. It is the only up-to-date, comprehensive, single book that covers the field of biodiversity in the context of climate change." Brian Walker, CSIRO Sustainable Ecosystems, Canberra "This book will be a milestone in the emerging discipline of climate change biology. No issue is more important for the global environment; the impressive line-up of experts here gives it definitive coverage." Edward O. Wilson, Harvard University"

Book Description

Leading researchers discuss what is now known about past climate changes in different areas of the world. They examine recent trends in and projections about climate change; ways that particular organisms are responding to climate change; conservation challenges, including social and policy issues; and more.

Format: Paperback
For many years habitat destruction due to population pressure, and the overuse or misuse of resources, and the spread of invasive species, have been the principal human-related threats to global biodiversity. Now conservation managers are faced with an even bigger menace to that biodiversity; that of human-induced climate change, a further result of overuse or misuse of the planet's resources, and one that is likely to interact unfavourably, and exacerbate the effects of, the other threats. However, this is more than just a problem for conservationists; it is a monumental challenge to human ingenuity. To the laymen climate change is synonymous with global warming and understandably most people are concerned principally with how a change in local weather is going to impact on their quality of life. Although a general increase in temperature is perhaps the most obvious manifestation of climate change a global shift of the world's weather patterns is a prediction few scientists would deny. Some places will be drier, others wetter, the majority hotter, a few maybe cooler. The changes will be unpredictable, and naturally occurring climatic phenomena like El Niño and La Niña, which have global ramifications as far afield as the north Atlantic causing droughts and storms in different places, could change in their frequency and intensity resulting in dire local consequences in some areas.

This volume considers global climate change in terms of the effects on the world's biodiversity.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By J. Monzelowsky on February 19, 2008
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I originally used parts of the book for a research project, but after reading portions I decided that I must have the book and reread it from cover to cover. It has great concepts and it is well edited for a nice flow. If you like wildlife and climate change interests you this is a must read.
