Climate change is widely recognized as one of the gravest threats to the diversity of life. Actions we take today will determine the ability of plant and animals species to adapt to changing climatic conditions. NatureServe is applying data, decision-support tools, and network expertise to help understand how biodiversity will respond to the climates of the future.
