Global warming is going to change the climate of our world during the next century. It is predicted that within around 50 years summers in the UK will be 2C warmer and winters 4C milder. This increase in temperature would harm many of our rare plant and animal species. It would affect all aspects of land-use: farming, forestry, industry, recreation and wildlife. How can we protect our rare species and ensure their survival? Which are most at risk? This booklet analyzes the effects on our grasslands, verges and the passage and migration of birds, summarizing the research on probable effects on rare species and climate change in Great Britain.
