Nature’s services at risk in a changing climate

Smith, Henrik G. LU (2014) p.63-81
Abstract
Climate change is increasingly posing a threat to biodiversity, both through its direct effects on organisms and through indirect effects resulting from changes in land use. Preserving biodiversity is an ethical obligation, but it is also increasingly being realised that biodiversity contributes to ecosystem services, i.e. ecosystem processes important for human needs and prosperity. In order to answer the complex questions surrounding ecosystems and the services they provide us with, as well as to inform land management and policymaking, there is a need for a concerted effort from several scientific disciplines. BECC builds on research essential for understanding the impact of climate change on biodiversity
and ecosystem services, and... (More)
