It is, of course, impossible to know with certainty if sustainable river management is achievable for human-dominated rivers in the Anthropocene. At present, however, it seems to provide the best option for managing human-dominated rivers. Discussion Questions. For these questions, consider a river ecosystem in your area: : T.V. Royer. Biodiversity and Climate Change: Transforming the Biosphereis the definitive statement composed by a large percentage of the leading scientific experts on the most urgent global problem short of the destruction of Earth by a planet-sized asteroid.A remark cited inBiodiversity and Climate Changestates the issue cogently: ifnothing is done about climate change, you can forget about biodiversity.
A recent paper in BioScience, co-authored by Keller Kopf, Max Finlayson, myself (all Charles Sturt University), Neil Sims (CSIRO Land and Water) and Sally Hladyz (Monash University), sets out to ask: how can we measure change in human-dominated freshwater ecosystems, given that most are unlikely to be able to be restored to historical conditions? We propose the new concept of . AN OVERLOOKED CONSERVATION PROBLEM: MANAGING RESIDENTIAL LANDSCAPES Grimm et al. () put forth three reasons for studying human-dominated systems. First, because humans dominate Earth’s ecosystems, they must be part of ecological models. Second, models that include humans in a realistic way will increase success at solving environmental Cited by:
