Slide 4: Adaptation II
Our main focus in this adaptation section is not on other species adaptation processes, but rather on the adaptation options available to humans to ensure that we minimise species loss as a consequence of climate change. What we will do is firstly look at past trends in conservation and preservation, in order to understand what has led to the current state of conservation and disposition of conservation areas in the sub-region. We will then consider new trends that are taking place in the field of conservation , particularly strategic conservation planning tools.
Finally we will then look at the adaptation options that are available to society to minimise the rate of climate change-driven species extinction.
