About this book

Climate change and biodiversity loss are both pressing global problems. Efforts are being made to address the former through various mitigation and adaptation activities, but these may have consequences for biodiversity which are not identified or acknowledged. This book reviews how mitigation and adaptation measures in eight key areas - agriculture, forestry, energy, built environment, river and coastal flood management, health, tourism and leisure and conservation - may impact positively or negatively on biodiversity.
