Beschreibung

lt;p>Climate and Conservation presents case studies from around the world of projects focused on climate change adaptation-regional-scale endeavors where scientists, managers, and practitioners are working to protect biodiversity by protecting landscapes and seascapes in response to threats posed by climate change.

The book begins with an introductory section that frames the issues and takes a systematic look at planning for climate change adaptation. The nineteen chapters that follow examine particular case studies in every part of the world, including landscapes and seascapes from equatorial, temperate, montane, polar, and marine and freshwater regions.

Climate and Conservation offers readers tangible, place-based examples of projects designed to protect large landscapes as a means of conserving biodiversity in the face of the looming threat of global climate change.



Dr. Jodi Ann Hilty has served as the Director of the North America Program for the Wildlife Conservation Society since October 2007 and is based out of Bozeman, Montana. As Director, Dr. Hilty provides leadership on scientific applications to natural resource management and conservation. This includes leading efforts to address four major conservation challenges including natural resource extraction, livelihoods, connectivity, and climate change. As Director, she oversees a staff of approximately 55 individuals that works in some of the most remote places in North America; applies and communicates scientific information; promotes the active involvement of WCS in the larger scientific and conservation community; strengthens partnerships between WCS and other organizations; garners resources for WCS work; and cultivates the next generation of conservation science leaders. Trained as a conservation biologist at the University of California, Berkeley, her passion is focused on finding creative science-based solutions to resolve critical conflicts between humans and natural world. Dr. Hilty is lead author on the 2006 book titled, Corridor Ecology: the Science and Practice of Linking Landscapes for Biodiversity Conservation and co-editor on the 2010 book titled, Safe Passages: Highways, Wildlife and Habitat Connectivity. She also sits on the boards of several conservation and academic organizations, is a member of the professional Society for Conservation Biology, and serves as a science member on a National Parks Service advisory board planning committee.
