On Friday, April 30 from 9 a.m to 5:00 p.m. (3 p.m to 10 p.m UK time), and again on Saturday, May 1 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (3 p.m. to 9 p.m. UK time), the symposium “Biodiversity and Climate Change: Conservation in the Face of Uncertainty” will attempt to answer some of the questions raised by the warming trend of the last century. The symposium will be broadcast live from the American Museum of Natural History in New York on the Center for Biodiversity and Conservation’s website.

The live video coverage will be supplemented by pages on the site giving abstracts of the presentations and background information on the speakers. There will also be an e-mail link, so that viewers can query speakers during question-and-answer sessions.

Keynote addresses will be delivered by D. James Baker, Under Secretary for Oceans and Atmosphere, U.S. Department of Commerce, and Frank E. Loy, Under Secretary of State for Global Affairs.

To view the webcast, you will need to download RealPlayer before the conference begins. Go to http://www.real.com/products/player/index.html and look for the “free download” button. The procedure will take about 15 minutes.
