“Conservationists must therefore assess both
current and future distributions of species Š.
One critical question is whether models Š can Š
provide robust predictions of future
distributions under climate change.”

Confront uncertainty. Once we free ourselves from
the illusion that science or technology (if
lavishly funded) can provide a solution to
resource or conservation problems, appropriate
action becomes possible.”
