Summary
    Biodiversity and the Climate Crisis: Essential Understanding and Connections provides students with a collection of scholarly articles that not only help them to build an appreciation for the vast diversity of species on Earth, but also an understanding of how Earth’s climate is changing rapidly, with implications of climate disruption on societies and especially other species.

    Over the course of eleven chapters, students read articles that introduce the concept and descriptions of biodiversity and provide scientific evidence of climate change and how it is impacting species. Students read about climate disruption effects upon species in regions of North America, as well as global-scale responses and vulnerability of marine fisheries to climate disruption. The collection concludes with a chapter that discusses the economic impact of climate change, with recommendations on how to constructively address this international problem, including the pivotal role of young people.

    The revised first edition features full color photos, charts, graphs, and maps.

    A timely resource developed to provide students with valuable foundational knowledge, Biodiversity and the Climate Crisis is well-suited for undergraduate courses in environmental science and environmental studies.
