Past environmental pressures affect current biodiversity loss
29.10.2013

Science for Environment Policy (2013) Issue 346

The negative effects of human activity on biodiversity may not be fully realised for several decades, or even a century for some species, new research suggests. Conservation efforts may need to be much increased to prevent declines of wildlife populations as a result of environmental pressures that occurred many years ago, say the study’s authors.
