This report examines the impact of climate change on nearly 80,000 species in 35 of the world’s most diverse and naturally wildlife-rich areas. It models a number of different climate scenarios—from a no-emissions-cuts business-as-usual rise in global mean temperatures of 4.5°C to a 2°C global rise to keep to the upper limit of the Paris Agreement. Each area was chosen for its uniqueness and the variety of species, including plants, insects and animals, found there.
