Report: Ecosystems in Upheaval, Biodiversity in Collapse

• Common Dreams
 A new report documents how climate change is already causing rapid, massive changes with "cascading effects" on ecosystems and biodiversity.
The report (pdf), led by the US Geological Survey, the National Wildlife Federation and Arizona State University, foresees a global loss of biodiversity and major shifts in ecosystems.

"These geographic range and timing changes are causing cascading effects that extend through ecosystems, bringing together species that haven't previously interacted and creating mismatches between animals and their food sources," states Nancy Grimm, a scientist at ASU and a lead author of the report.
