Fostering landscape immunity to protect human health: A science‐based rationale for shifting conservation policy paradigms

  • Source: Conservation Letters
  • Author(s): Jamie K. Reaser et al.
  • Anthropogenic land use change is a major driver of zoonotic pathogen spillover from wildlife to humans. According to the land use-induced spillover model, land use change alters environmental conditions that in turn alter the dynamics between zoonotic pathogens and their wildlife hosts…

Comparative views of the public, hunters, and wildlife managers on the management of reintroduced bison

  • Source: Global Ecology and Conservation
  • Author(s): Alistair J. Bath et al.
  • Public support is often instrumental for restoring large mammals to landscapes where they have been extirpated. Effective conservation planning likely often hinges on wildlife managers understanding and reflecting the values and beliefs of their constituencies. Yet, comparative views of wildlife managers…

Future global conflict risk hotspots between biodiversity conservation and food security: 10 countries and 7 Biodiversity Hotspots

  • Source: Global Ecology and Conservation
  • Author(s): Jianqiao Zhao et al.
  • Balancing biodiversity conservation and food security is the key to global sustainable development. However, we know little about the future global conflict risk hotspots between biodiversity and food security at both country and Biodiversity Hotspots (BHs) levels. First we calculated land use intensity…

Where will species on the move go? Insights from climate connectivity modelling across European terrestrial habitats

  • Source: Journal for Nature Conservation
  • Author(s): Sylvain Sonntag and Yoan Fourcade
  • Climate change can induce species range shifts. However, the intensity of climate change, the intrinsic dispersal ability of species and the anthropization of landscapes are impeding species movements in most cases. In this context, preserving and promoting climate corridors for species to migrate…

Valuing wetland conservation: A contingent valuation analysis among Iranian beneficiaries

  • Source: Journal for Nature Conservation
  • Author(s): Mansour Ghanian et al.
  • Wetland ecosystems conservation is a critical environmental policy and practice challenge. Though policy protection mechanisms ostensibly establish a commitment to long-term protection, the level and types of wetland threats are growing. Management of sustainable wetland resources requires…

Interweaving local, expert, and Indigenous knowledge into quantitative wildlife analyses: A systematic review

  • Source: Biological Conservation
  • Author(s): Eleanor R. Stern and Murray M. Humphries
  • Inclusion of local, expert, or Indigenous knowledge about wildlife populations and their habitats can inform wildlife research, while also increasing knowledge holder engagement and support for wildlife conservation decisions. However, experiential wildlife knowledge accumulated over time through…

High and balanced contribution of regional biodiversity hotspots to epiphytic and epixylic lichen species diversity in Great Britain

  • Source: Biological Conservation
  • Author(s): Jeňýk Hofmeister et al.
  • We surveyed epiphytic and epixylic lichens in eleven 1-hectare forest plots located in representative old-forest stands in four distinct regions of Great Britain that are well-known centres of lichen biodiversity. We aimed to analyse the patterns of lichen biodiversity in these important biodiversity hotspots…
