LWEC - Biodiversity report card

This card summarises the latest scientific evidence and understanding of how climate change is affecting UK biodiversity. It shows where observed changes are likely to have been caused by changes in the UK climate over recent decades, and assesses potential future impacts of climate change on biodiversity.

The report card is based on technical review papers commissioned to provide in-depth analyses of specific topics. This version, published in 2015, updates the 2013 card, with revised source papers and two completely new sections on freshwater ecology and soil biota.
