PREDICTS Project: Global Analysis Reveals Massive Biodiversity Losses

Thu, 21 May 2015 14:44:08 +0000

The changing climate is only one of a myriad of pressures faced by global biodiversity – we are also changing habitats and altering land-use on an unprecedented scale. The first global analysis published from the PREDICTS project reveals the striking global effect of land-use change on local biodiversity patterns, and highlights the importance of future […]
