Diverse Landscapes are more productive and adapt better to Climate Change

Ecosystems with high biodiversity are more productive and stable towards annual fluctuations in environmental conditions than those with a low diversity of species..

They also adapt better to climate-driven environmental changes. These are the key findings environmental scientists at the University of Zurich, Jacqueline Oehri et al.,  in a study of about 450 landscapes harbouring 2,200 plants and animal species published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.  More information here
