Summary
"An ecologist takes the uniquely positive--yet realistic--position that we can adapt and persist despite the inevitable effects of climate change. In Finding Higher Ground, Amy Seidl brings us emerging stories of adaptation from both the natural world and human communities, offering examples of how ecosystems, plants, and animals are responding on behavioral and genetic levels to environmental change. Reducing our carbon footprint is vital, but climate change is already in motion. In looking at this change as an opportunity for cultural evolution, Seidl's perspective flies in the face of prevailing fatalism. While she acknowledges that some species will not make it, her overall message--backed up by current, sound science--inspires readers to move beyond loss into optimism and action"--
