Klimabedingte Biodiversitätsrisiken. Ein neues Forschungsgebiet für BiK-F

  • Climate and biodiversity change can have negative or unexpected social, economic or ecological effects. The Knowledge Flow Paper at hand is dealing with the question what potentials concepts of risk might have for climate related biodiversity research with respect to the synthesis of the results as well as regarding their communication within society. The term “climate induced biodiversity risks” will be introduced in detail and then looked at more closely with respect to its potentials for the research within BiK-F. In the first part, general risk perspectives and their scientific interpretation will be presented and significant components of the risk concept will be introduced. On this basis they will then be applied to the subject areas of biodiversity and climate. A distinction is made between risks for biodiversity, risks for ecosystem services and risks due to climate induced changes of biodiversity for further ecological assets. Thus, this Knowledge Flow Paper initially serves as basis for decisions concerning the possibilities and ways to link risk related areas of research. Furthermore, we would like to offer suggestions to the readers on how to correlate existing discourses on risks and biodiversity.
