Climate Change Threatens Global Ecosystems and Economic Inequality, Warns UC Davis Study

A recent study, led by lead author Dr. Bernardo Bastien-Olvera, a former UC Davis doctoral student and current postdoctoral fellow at Scripps, along with scientists from the University of California, Davis, and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego, reveals that climate change is expected to cause a 9% loss of ecosystem services by 2100, with significant economic consequences. This research, which emphasizes the importance of accounting for nature's value in climate policies, was conducted with the leadership of Dr. Frances C. Moore, an associate professor in the UC Davis Department of Environmental Science and Policy.
