Their solutions to declines in biodiversity focus on people and on practical on-ground actions, particularly burning and manipulating target species for This important book for scientists and nonscientists alike calls attention to a most urgent global problem: the rapidly accelerating loss of plant and animal species to increasing human population pressure and the demands of economic development.

In economic terms, the rivers, wetlands and flood plains of the Murray-Darling Basin are thought to provide $ billion in ecosystem services annually, and terrestrial ecosystems up to $ billion per year. Biodiversity related industries also contribute significantly and directly to the Australian economy: it has been estimated that, per year, Australia’s commercial fisheries are worth $2 @.nsf/Lookup/Feature+Article– Australia's unique biodiversity is under threat from a rapidly changing climate.

Concurrent with long-term persistent warming, discrete periods of extreme Ecosystems in the Mediterranean-climate regions of the world have served as a unit for comparative ecological studies for over two decades.

The cohesiveness of research in this set of widely distributed regions rests on the similarity of the climates where they occur, and the identifiable convergence in elements of their vegetation structure (Di Castri and Mooney ).
