2. Biosphere Interactions

Working group 2 investigates groups of organisms of key importance for ecosystem function and how changes in the living nature will affect Earth’s functions and societies’ dependence on these functions. The assessed functions include environmental processes as well as social dimensions, such as supporting livelihoods, and cultural dimensions, like iconic species.
