Our planet’s biology and its climate are inexorably coupled. Warmer and less predictable climates will continue to diminish the planet’s biodiversity. But biological systems can be part of a solution.

In an SFI Community Lecture January 8, 2014 in Santa Fe, conservation biology pioneer Thomas Lovejoy examined the present and possible future impacts of climate change and explored how we might manage both biological and human economic systems to reduce its long-term effects.
