Stephane Bilodeau's curator insight, July 17, 6:38 PM
"Climate change poses major threats to both natural and managed systems of the UK and worldwide," said Professor Bardgett. "Not only does it pose significant risks to our natural capital, including terrestrial, marine, freshwater and coastal ecosystems, but also it threatens our ability to produce food, for example due to increased incidence of pests and diseases, and the erosion of our soils." - 
The key threats:
- Heatwaves 
- Water shortages 
- Floods and coastal erosion 
- Farmland expected to be driven down by degraded soil and water shortages 
- Food prices to be driven up 
- Diseases and pests
