About this book

This book compiles the latest research on the effects of climate change on biodiversity in the Americas and the sustainability efforts being made to preserve the ecological integrity of these regions. Scientists working in Canada, Puerto Rico, Argentina, the USA, Mexico, Panama, and Costa Rica contribute their findings in such varied areas as avian populations, the impacts of climate extremes on biodiversity, carbon storage in tree plantations, and the relationship between precipitation and vegetation. The changing climate and human activity are affecting ecosystems throughout the Americas. Governments, NGOs, industries, and communities need to learn about these changes in order to adapt their planning, infrastructure, and operations to mitigate the loss of biodiversity.

To implement the changes necessary for sustainable ecosystems that are biologically healthy, functional and diverse, humanity also needs hope and the ability to dream of a glorious coexistence with a planet teeming with life. Part of the solution lies in the natural world and its ability to instill wonder. Awakening the biophilia inherent in humanity can improve the outlook for biodiversity if everyone has more contact with life on Earth and becomes more aware of the negative trends that threaten it.--Thomas Lovejoy
