The impacts and consequences ofbiodiversity loss are analyzed with a strong focus on socio-economicdrivers and their effects on society. Three scenarios of potentialfutures are the baseline for predicting impacts and explore options formitigating adverse effects at several spatio-temporal scales. Elementsof these futures are modeled, tested and illustrated. The Atlas isdivided into chapters which mostly deal with particular pressures.
