How does climate change affect the evolution of species? From the Brazilian rainforest to the ocean floors, how has the variety of life found on our planet evolved throughout complex climatic changes in the past, and what are the current forecasts for adaptation and extinction? Leading scientists and thinkers, including Elizabeth Alter, assistant professor of biology at York College and the GC, share their research and examine the prospects for biodiversity on a warming planet.
