EE Book 6 covers important recent changes in climate, hydrological cycles, biodiversity, breakdowns in biogeographical barriers, and a variety of human impacts on the delicate balances that have made it possible for life on earth to establish itself and to evolve over billions of years into the multifaceted, wonderful biota that we are privileged to enjoy and utilize today. Much of the book focusses on the responses to these changes by national and international non-governmental and governmental bodies.
