Waterbirds on the Edge: first circumpolar assessment of climate change impact on Arctic Breeding water birds

United Nations Environment Programme - World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) (2000)

This first analysis of the likely impact of climate change on biodiversity demonstrates the impact on Arctic waterbirds. The Arctic will be the biome most affected by climate change and hence waterbird species, most of which are entirely reliant on Arctic habitats, are particularly vulnerable.
