Extinction & Global Change

Authored by: 

Human activity is threatening the existence of natural habitats and the existence of species to such a degree that potentially half of all the life forms on the planet could be lost in a single human lifetime. To address this pending ecological catastrophe, 31 scientists from around the world convened in Aspen, CO during summer of 1991 to better define the scope of the problem, identify areas in need of improved research, and identify pathways for solutions. The conclusions reached at this meeting are recorded in this inaugural installment of AGCI's ongoing Elements of Change series. Inside this report, particular attention is directed towards understanding the linkages between biodiversity and development.
