Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[T]he authors present convincing data, colorful schematics and figures, and working group summaries that explain the science of climate change, summarize impact as well as vulnerabilities, and finally, present mitigation strategies. This is a slick report that condenses global strategies intended to avoid loss of biodiversity while retaining sustainable production of key foods.... Recommended." Choice
