Presentation Title:
Climate Change and its Implications for Conservation and Policy

Desription of Presentation:
The causes and ecological consequences of rapid climate change are presented in a global context. These realities challenge the conservation paradigm in fundamental ways, and will require exploration of new policies and strategies to achieve meaningful conservation into the 21st century and beyond.
