Climate Change and Birds conference proceedings


Climate change is a symptom, one of many, of the demands that a large and increasing human population makes upon the limited resources and resilience of our planet. Climate change is serious and it is crucial that we assess and understand its effects and predict future consequences.

The proceedings of the BOU's recent conference on Climate Change and Birds provide an overview from direct effects of climate change on physiology and phenology, through effects on populations and ranges, to possible consequences of mitigation strategies.

All articles in Climate Change and Birds are free-to-view via the BOU's conference proceedings website at www.BOUPROC.net.
