A discussion on how the effects of climate change will impact species variably, and methods for factoring this into conservation planning.   Can we apply what we know about well-studied taxa to those we know less about?  This meeting will explore the past and future role of climate-change vulnerability assessments and how they can be incorporated into extinction risk assessments for the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

 

Speakers
James Pearce-Higgins, Science Director at the British Trust for Ornithology
Impacts of climate change on birds

Jamie Carr, Climate Change Programme Officer, IUCN Global Species Programme
Assessing species vulnerability to climate change: how and why?
