  • Beyond counts and averages: Relating geodiversity to dimensions of biodiversity
    • Source: Global Ecology and Biogeography
    • Author(s): Quentin D. Read et al
    • We may be able to buffer biodiversity against the effects of ongoing climate change by prioritizing the protection of habitat with diverse physical features (high geodiversity) associated with ecological and evolutionary mechanisms that maintain high biodiversity. Nonetheless, the relationships…
  • Ecological time lags and the journey towards conservation success
    • Source: Nature Ecology & Evolution
    • Author(s): Kevin Watts, Robin C. Whytock, Kirsty J. Park, Elisa Fuentes-Montemayor, Nicholas A. Macgregor, Simon Duffield, & Philip J. K. McGowan
    • Global conservation targets to reverse biodiversity declines and halt species extinctions are not being met despite decades of conservation action.
  • Feeding ten billion people is possible within four terrestrial planetary boundaries
    • Source: Nature Sustainability
    • Author(s): Dieter Gerten et al.
    • A study now suggests a comprehensive solution package for feeding 10 billion people within our planet’s environmental boundaries. Supplying a sufficient and healthy diet for every person whilst keeping our biosphere largely intact will require no less than a technological and socio-cultural U-turn.
  • Study: Activism and civil disobedience help communicate the science of climate change
    • Source: Global Change Biology
    • Author(s): Stephen J. Thackeray et al.
    • A group of the world’s top climate change biologists, including Professor Pete Smith from the University of Aberdeen, have published an editorial highlighting how global movements of civil disobedience focused on climate change are playing an important role in increasing public awareness and engagement…
  • Climate change, ecosystems and abrupt change: science priorities
    • Source: The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B
    • Author(s): Monica G. Turner et al
    • Ecologists have long studied patterns, directions and tempos of change, but there is a pressing need to extend current understanding to empirical observations of abrupt changes as climate warming accelerates.
