CABI launches Environmental Impact internet resource
6 October 2008
CABI has launched an authoritative internet resource focusing on climate change and other major impacts of humans on the environment.
Environmental Impact pools together information on the effects of climate change on the terrestrial and freshwater biosphere, including crop production, plant pests and diseases, human and animal health, natural resources and tourism. It also covers other aspects of human's impact on the environment such as pollution, deforestation, desertification and habitat loss.
“We have created Environmental Impact in response to demand from the scientific community, policy makers and information specialists for a single comprehensive information resource on this challenging topic,” said Dr Halina Dawson, Content Manager for Environmental Sciences, CABI.
The resource also offers the latest information on adaptation and mitigation strategies such as production and utilization of biofuels and fuelwood, creation of ‘habitat corridors’, enhanced carbon sequestration, agroforestry and restoration ecology.
