Stitching Together Work of LCCs across the Southeast
The Southeast Conservation Adaptation Strategy (SECAS) is a shared, long-term vision for the conservation future of the Southeast and Caribbean region of the ...
21st century conservation: A vision of collaboration across landscapes
Just one week after taking office, the Biden administration proposed an ambitious conservation agenda to stem the loss of biodiversity, enhance environmental ...
Are we in the midst of the sixth mass extinction? A view from the world of amphibians
Many scientists argue that we are either entering or in the midst of the sixth great mass extinction. Intense human pressure, both direct and indirect, is ...
Feedbacks of Terrestrial Ecosystems to Climate Change
Most modeling studies on terrestrial feedbacks to warming over the twenty-first century imply that the net feedbacks are negative—that changes in ecosystems, ...
Conservation Biology: Predicting Birds’ Responses to Forest Fragmentation
Understanding species’ ecological responses to habitat fragmentation is critical for biodiversity conservation, especially in tropical forests. A detailed ...
BOTANY AND A CHANGING WORLD: INTRODUCTION TO THE SPECIAL ISSUE ON GLOBAL BIOLOGICAL CHANGE
The impacts of global change have heightened the need to understand how organisms respond to and influence these changes. Can we forecast how change at the ...
Approaching a state shift in Earth’s biosphere
Localized ecological systems are known to shift abruptly and irreversibly from one state to another when they are forced across critical thresholds. Here we ...
Atmospheric CO2 forces abrupt vegetation shifts locally, but not globally
It is possible that anthropogenic climate change will drive the Earth system into a qualitatively different state1. Although different types of uncertainty ...
Elevation-dependent influence of snow accumulation on forest greening
Rising temperatures and declining water availability have influenced the ecological function of mountain forests over the past half-century. For instance, ...
Ecosystem services: From theory to implementation
Around the world, leaders are increasingly recognizing ecosystems as natural capital assets that supply life-support services of tremendous value. The ...
Climate-induced changes in the small mammal communities of the Northern Great Lakes Region
We use museum and other collection records to document large and extraordinarily rapid changes in the ranges and relative abundance of nine species of mammals ...
Conservation threats: biofuel
Biofuels: Europe’s largest conservation charity has launched a campaign to heighten the threat to wildlife habitats and biodiversity from plantations of fuel ...
Another reason for concern: regional and global impacts on ecosystems for different levels of climate change
Between 1􏲒C and 2􏲒C increases in global mean temperatures most species, ecosystems and landscapes will be impacted and adaptive capacity will become limited. ...
Impacts of mountaintop mining on terrestrial ecosystem integrity: identifying landscape thresholds for avian species in the central Appalachians, United States
Reclaimed mine-dominated landscapes (less forest and more grassland/shrubland cover) elicited more negative (57 %) than positive (39 %) species responses. ...
Scenarios of future land use change around United States’ protected areas
Land use change around protected areas can diminish their conservation value, making it important to predict future land use changes nearby. Our goal was to ...
Reconciling nature conservation and traditional farming practices: a spatially explicit framework to assess the extent of High Nature Value farmlands in the European countryside
Over past centuries, European landscapes have been shaped by human management. Traditional, low intensity agricultural practices, adapted to local climatic, ...
Forecasting the response of Earth’s surface to future climatic and land use changes: A review of methods and research needs
In the future, Earth will be warmer, precipitation events will be more extreme, global mean sea level will rise, and many arid and semiarid regions will be ...
