Globio: Global Methodology for Mapping Human Impacts on the Biosphere : the Arctic 2050 Scenario and Global Application, Issue 3
GLOBIO is an attempt to provide scientifically based information about the consequences of decisions for the future of biodiversity, sustainable development, and local cultures. It examines the potential consequences of different scenarios of infrastructure development in the coming decades, focusing on the Arctic region, and demonstrates how GLOBIO can be used as a supplement to traditional wildlife biology and landscape ecology approaches.
