Reviewing the potential impacts of geoengineering on ecosystems and biodiversity

If climate change continues at the current rate, it is predicted to have a range of serious consequences, including significant losses of biodiversity and ecosystems. Geoengineering, the large-scale manipulation of the Earth’s environment, has been proposed as a potential solution. This challenge has given rise to a range of technical solutions, including adding nutrients to the ocean…

The impacts of climate change on global biodiversity

Climate change is projected to have a significant effect upon the future rate of biodiversity loss. There is therefore an urgent need to identify the key mechanisms underpinning climate change impacts on biodiversity in order to best select climate change adaptation strategies. It is also essential that the scale of these changes are clearly communicated…
