Critical issues about the impact of human activities on ecological systems challenge tomorrow's generation. This series introduces students to the science behind the headlines. Each volume in the Global Environmental Change series targets an essential issue and involves students in research and discussion to teach concepts and decision-making skills.This book uses Costa Rica as a case study because its tropical forests contain four percent of Earth's total biological species diversity. Biodiversity's activities and readings help students explore efforts to balance economic expansion with resource conservation. This resource has activities to explore local biodiversity and true-to-life role-playing scenarios, so students can apply what they have learned.
