Synthesis Summary 6: Terrestrial ecosystems
Increasing temperatures, more frequent and severe extreme weather events and declining rainfall have already resulted in observable shifts in the behaviour of terrestrial plants and animals, and more widespread impacts are evident on all terrestrial ecosystems. This summary addresses adaptation actions to support terrestrial ecosystem conservation and function in a changing climate. It provides a synthesis of the latest research findings in this area, and discusses how this new knowledge might help address key adaptation policy challenges.
