The effectiveness of protected areas and the Natura 2000 network in conserving a large proportion of European plant and terrestrial vertebrate species under climate change is assessed and the risk is high that ongoing efforts to conserve Europe's biodiversity are jeopardized by climate change.

Multiple Dimensions of Climate Change and Their Implications for Biodiversity
This review critically assesses the variety of metrics commonly used to describe climate change in biodiversity-impact assessments covering local changes in climate averages and extremes, regional changes in the availability and position of climates, and the velocity of climate change.
Would climate change drive species out of reserves? An assessment of existing reserve‐selection methods
Concern for climate change has not yet been integrated in protocols for reserve selection. However if climate changes as projected, there is a possibility that current reserve‐selection methods might…

Africa is predicted to be highly vulnerable to 21st century climatic changes. Assessing the impacts of these changes on Africa's biodiversity is, however, plagued by uncertainties, and markedly…

Two reserve selection approaches that implicitly deal with biodiversity persistence are brought together by combining habitat models and spatial reserve design in a single algorithm, which applied to a data set of 26 species of butterflies from north Wales.
Single‐species dynamic site selection
An optimization method is presented, which uses a combination of evolutionary optimization and local search to find the optimal selection of sites in a metapopulation of the false heath fritillary butterfly, an endangered species in Finland.
