Description:

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.This textbook features:Colorful illustrations and photographs that bring the field to life through visual impactLiterature boxes that summarize the most important research in the fieldFurther reading suggestions of in-depth sources for students interested in deeper exploration* The only advanced student text on the biological aspects of climate change * 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

Lee Hannah is Senior Researcher in Climate Change Biology the Betty and Gordon Moore Center for Science and Oceans at Conservation International (CI). Tracking with his interest in the role of climate change in conservation planning and methods of corridor design, he heads CI's efforts to develop conservation responses to climate change. He works collaboratively with the Bren School at UC Santa Barbara to model climate impacts on species in California, and with the National Botanical Institute in Cape Town, South Africa to model biotic change resulting from global warming in biodiversity hot spots in that region. He has written on the global extent of wilderness and the role of communities in the management of protected areas.
