Human-induced climate change is emerging as one of the gravest threats to biodiversity in history, and while a vast amount of literature on the ecological impact of climate change exists, very little has been dedicated to the management of wildlife populations and communities in the wake of unprecedented habitat changes. Wildlife Conservation in a Changing Climate is an essential resource, bringing together leaders in the fields of climate change ecology, wildlife population dynamics, and environmental policy to examine the impacts of climate change on populations of terrestrial vertebrates. Chapters assess the details of climate change ecology, including demographic implications for individual populations, evolutionary responses, impacts on movement patterns, alterations of species interactions, and predicting impacts across regions. The contributors also present a number of strategies by which conservationists and wildlife managers can counter or mitigate the impacts of climate change as well as increase the resilience of wildlife populations to such changes. A seminal contribution to the fields of ecology and conservation biology,Wildlife Conservation in a Changing Climate will serve as the spark that ignites a new direction of discussions about and action on the ecology and conservation of wildlife in a changing climate.
Scotland's stunning array of wildlife is skilfully captured amid the dramatic landscapes that define the country. As well as iconic species such as the golden eagle, red squirrel, Scottish wild cat and red deer, many other creatures come under the lens to show the great diversity that is to be found around the country.
Olympic National Park includes an astonishing variety of climates, habitats, and wildlife. The park includes coastline, mountains, glaciers, and rainforest. Within its boundaries exists a unique mixture of species, including some species that are completely unique to the Olympic Peninsula. This Pocket Naturalist will guide you to identify the most common among them.
