An essential, up-to-date look at the critical interactions between biological diversity and climate change that will serve as an immediate call to action

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 sweep of climate change transformation of the biosphere.
Thomas E. Lovejoy is university professor at George Mason University. Lee Hannah is senior scientist at the Moore Center for Science, Conservation International and adjunct professor, Bren School of Environmental Science and Management at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
