Climate Change Biology

Lee Hannah

Academic Press, 1ª edição, 2010
ISBN: 9780123741820
Tipo: Brochura
Número de páginas: 416

Climate Change Biology is a new textbook which examines this emerging discipline of human-induced climate change and the resulting shifts in the distributions of species and the timing of biological events. The text focuses on understanding the impacts of human-induced climate change, but draws on multiple lines of evidence, including paleoecology, modelling and current observation. Climate Change Biology lays out the scope and depth of understanding of this new discipline in terms that are accessible to students, managers and professional biologists.

* Examines recent and deep past climate change effects to better understand the impacts of recent human-induced changes

* Discusses the conservation and other ecological implications of climate change in detail

* Presents recipes for coping with accelerating climate change in the future

* Includes extensive illustrations with maps diagrams and color photographs
