Of all the places on earth that are home to exquisite species, Southern Africa is particularly noted. But its flora and fauna stand prone to increasingly violent climate change within the next decades. And that's a prediction that's come to have scientific credibility only very recently. Proof that climate change is happening has been discovered in Southern Africa. This is the story of that discovery and why it is so important to world class biodiversity hotspots. It involves two scientists and the Quiver tree. The two scientists, Wendy Foden, and her supervisor, Guy Midgley, from the South African National Biodiversity Institute, chose the desert succulent, the Quiver tree, to predict what the future holds.
