They call for the establishment of an Intergovernmental Panel on Biodiversity (IPB) to parallel the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

I finished reading Last Chance to See last week and resolved to follow up to see what had happened since Adams wrote the book. I chanced on your blog through your comment on Joe's . So I won't have to go very far! I'll be spending time here in the next few weeks, catching up. Thanks!
