IUCN's assessment is that climate change is important for many Red List species; but it is not the only threat, and not the most important threat. There are conflicts between addressing the various issues, with biofuels perhaps being the obvious example. Useful they may turn out to be in reducing greenhouse gas emissions; but many conservationists are seriously concerned that the vast swathes of monoculture they will bring spell dire consequences for creatures such as the orangutan Life Magazine, February 21, 1938. Children are also interested in the sky and how far away it is from the ground. Nature will also teach children how animals and insects get their food.

Buckbean also occurs in acidic bogs, but does not thrive as well in them as it does in calcareous wetlands. This illustrates an ecological principle, namely, that the normal climatic range of a species, such as that the cold-loving Buckbean, may be expanded by the increased availability of nutrients or other favorable environmental factors LIFE Magazine - July 19, 1954.

This really began when Alfred Russel Wallace (1823-1913) travelled widely in the region.
