Human impacts on biodiversity are leading to extinction that largely exceeds natural background rates.

This is impairing the capacity of ecosystems to deliver basic goods and services to humanity; and in turn, it is undermining efforts to improve human welfare.

In this presentation, I describe global scale analyses into the impacts of climate change on marine and terrestrial ecosystems and how they are making a large fraction of the world’s human population vulnerable to loosing important sources of revenue, food and jobs.
