San Diego County is a biodiversity hot spot. The unique Mediterranean climate and landscape create an environment where diverse species thrive.

But, climate change, invasive species and habitat destruction pose a major threat to the natural habitats and species here.

Michael Wall, vice president of science and conservation at The Nat, will discuss those threats in a Nat Talk on the state of the region's biodiversity Tuesday night.

Wall joins Midday Edition on Monday with a preview.

GUEST: Michael Wall, vice president of science and conservation, San Diego Natural History Museum
