Biodiversity and Climate Change

25 June 2019

Climate change and other human pressures on ecosystems increasingly present challenges for conservation researchers, practitioners, policy makers, and society at large. Debate about how to manage biodiversity under climate change is influenced strongly by individual preferences of experts, yet there is little published about their preferences. This survey seeks to fill a critical gap in our understanding, contributing to discussion and debate about how to manage ecosystems in the Anthropocene.
