CfP: Conference on Biodiversity, Ecosystem and Climate Change @ CSI College of Engineering, Tamil Nadu [Apr 05]: Submit by Jan 05: Expired

Background Note

Look after nature, so it can look after you.

Climate is an important environmental influence on the ecosystem, ecosystem services, and biodiversity. Climate change not only affects ecosystems and species directly, but it also interacts with other man-made stresses such as innovation, development and landscape changes.

Although some stresses cause minor impacts when acting alone, their persistent and cumulative impact may lead to revolutionary ecological changes and imbalances. Climate change affects the living world, including people, through changes in ecosystems, biodiversity, and ecosystem services. Therefore, climate change is both a cause and an effect of the ecosystem, ecosystem services, and biodiversity changes.

Humans are affecting nature in an unprecedented fashion, on a global scale, and with unpredictable and frequently irreversible results. Human activities are currently responsible for a species loss rate that is the most extreme in millions of years, and an alarmingly increasing rate of transformation and fragmentation of natural landscapes.
