Each year since 1995, participants in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) meet as a Conference of the Parties (COP) to determine how best to address the rapid changes currently occurring across our global climate. This Special Collection on Transformations in Climate and Biodiversity has been timed to coincide with the COP25 meeting to be held in Spain this year. The Collection presents comprehensive review articles and original research by leading authorities from a broad spectrum of scientific domains and documents advances in the scientific underpinnings of interactions between biodiversity and climate. As a whole, these studies deepen our understanding of current bioclimatic changes and provide guidance on how best to navigate through the rapid alterations we are seeing today. The evidence compiled here suggests that the negative impacts of climate change can be kept under control if we collectively act and, critically, use biodiversity as part of the solutions we invent. Together these research studies demonstrate how linking the management of biodiversity and climate might enable us to keep ongoing transformations in climate and biodiversity within safe operating boundaries.
