Title: "Land-use and climate interactions, and the future for biodiversity"
Speaker: Dr Tim Newbold - Research Fellow (lab website)
Venue: Lankester LT, Medawar Building (map)
Host: Dr Alex Pigot (email)
Abstract: Land-use and climate change are among the greatest drivers of terrestrial biodiversity loss. However, our understanding of the potential interactions between these drivers remains limited. I will present some of my recent research that attempts to identify some of the ways in which land-use and climate change might interact, and to assess how this might influence future patterns of biodiversity under different scenarios. I will also discuss the consequences of these findings for humans, given our reliance on biodiversity for providing key ecosystem services.
