URL: http://www.fao.org/docrep/015/i2498e/i2498e.pdf

This paper examines the likely ecosystem and landscape changes that will occur in forests, mountains, wetlands, coastal areas, savannahs, grasslands and steppes. Impacts include changes in physical conditions, weather patterns and ecosystem functioning. It provides case studies of activities undertaken by countries to preserve their native biodiversity from the changing climate.  This document is useful for policymakers wanting to increase their knowledge in biodiversity; and for mainstreaming biodiversity in adaptation planning.
