Climate change is probably the most serious challenge facing biodiversity conservation. Brian will discuss how plant and animal species have responded to past climates, and how species are being affected now. He will consider the likely future changes in plant communities and species distributions, and how these will affect the management of nature reserves. He will describe the responses of conservation organisations to the challenges of climate change, and the advent of landscape-scale conservation in the UK, using the Great Fen and other local examples.
