About this book

Language: Spanish, also available in English

FAO's report La Fauna Silvestre En Un Clima Cambiante, foresees that the rate of loss of wild animal species will be accelerated by climate change unless urgent measures are taken. Particularly at risk are wildlife and ecosystems in coastal and mountain areas, while Africa, where a mean temperature rise of 3-4°C is expected by the end of the century, is one of the world's most vulnerable regions. Using case studies, the report puts forward a series of responsive measures to mitigate the impact of climate change.

Summary in Spanish:
Esta publicación examina las consecuencias probables del cambio climático en la fauna silvestre, incluyendo la alteración de ecosistemas y la composición de especies y la mayor incidencia de conflictos entre los seres humanos y la fauna silvestre, incendios forestales y la dispersión de especies invasoras y enfermedades infecciosas. La publicación se centra en la fauna terrestre tropical y sus hábitats, pero también se analizan otros ecosistemas de fauna y otras regiones geográficas.
