The “European Conference on Biodiversity and Climate Change – Science, Practice & Policy”, held on 12 & 13 April 2011 in Bonn, Germany, was organized by the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN) in co-operation with the ENCA Interest Group on Climate Change and the University of Greifswald. A wide range of European experts convened to discuss the latest research findings in the field of biodiversity and climate change and to explore options of how to improve the dialogue between science, policy and practice. A major thread throughout the conference was the question of how scientific results can be better integrated into political decision making processes and implemented in practice.
This BfN-Script gives an overview on the discussed issues and the major outcomes of the conference. Following the introductory part, these proceedings are complemented by a set of conclusions and recommendations based on information presented in talks and posters during the conference and in the final panel discussion elaborated by the ENCA Climate Change Group during a follow-up workshop to the conference. The core of this publication form the abstracts of oral and poster presentations which the majority of speakers and presenters of posters have kindly contributed to these proceedings. Most authors have included their contact details as well as key literature and useful web pages that allow the interested reader to further deepen his knowledge in the specific field. The slides of most presentations as well as an online version of this report can be downloaded from the conference documentation website at
