Pepper, David; Lada, Hania; Thompson, James R.; Bakar, K Shuvo; Lake, P.S.(Sam); Mac Nally, Ralph Charles


Most natural assets, including native biodiversity (our focus), are under increasing threat from direct (loss of habitat, hunting) and indirect (climate change) human actions. Most human impacts arise from increasing human populations coupled with rises in per capita resource use. The rates of change of human actions generally outpace those to which the biota can respond or adapt. If we are to maintain native biodiversity, then we must develop ways to envisage how the biota may be affected over...[Show more]
