Climate change at the GBIF Science Symposium 2012

Eight researchers presented their work making use of data accessed through GBIF at the annual science symposium, organized alongside the GBIF governing board meeting, taking place in September the 19th in Lillehammer. The symposium’s title was GBIF at work – biodiversity data at the service of science and society, and a major focus was the use of data from observations and natural history collections to help predict the impacts of climate change on species and ecosystems. Sever al speakers highlighted that habitats such as coral reefs or the Arctic region are among the most vulnerable to global warming. Governments are aiming to agree a pact by 2015 to slow climate change, entering into force by 2020.
