'Too little time' to save all bio-diversity


2010 has been declared the "Year of Biodiversity" by the United Nations. The issue of biodiversity and the continuing loss of plant and animal species divides conservationists and is to be the subject of a major conference being organised by the Royal Society, of which Today's guest editor Martin Rees, is president.

Science correspondent Tom Feilden reports on the row over biodiversity, and Sir Partha Dasgupta, professor of economics at Cambridge, discusses the effect of plant and animal loss.
