  • Habitat loss linked to global emergence of infectious diseases
    • Source: Trends in Parasitology
    • Title: The coevolution effect as a driver of spillover
    • Author(s): Sarah Zohdy, Tonia S. Schwartz, Jamie R. Oaks.

  • Predicting intervention priorities for wildlife conflicts
    • Source: Conservation Biology
    • Author(s): Zachary Baynham‐Herd  Steve Redpath  Nils Bunnefeld  Aidan Keane
    • Abstract: There is growing interest in developing effective interventions to manage socially‐ and environmentally‐damaging conservation conflicts. Recent studies have identified a wide variety of different intervention strategies in various contexts but the reasons why one type of intervention is chosen…
  • Amazonian tree species threatened by deforestation and climate change
    • Source: Nature Climate Change
    • Author(s): Vitor H. F. Gomes, Ima C. G. Vieira, Rafael P. Salomão & Hans ter Steege
    • Abstract: The combined impacts of climate change and deforestation are estimated to reduce Amazon tree species richness by up to 58% by 2050, whilst deforestation alone may cause 19–36%, and climate change alone 31–37%
  • Sustainable development and climate goals
    • Source: Nature Climate Change
    • Author(s): Adam Yeeles
    • Abstract: In April 2019, the United Nations convened a Global Conference on Strengthening Synergies between the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. We asked five experts to discuss the challenges in…

  • Prepare river ecosystems for an uncertain future
    • Source: Nature Comment
    • Author(s): Jonathan D. Tonkin et al.
    • Abstract: As the climate warms, we can’t restore waterways to pristine condition, but models can predict potential changes, argue Jonathan D. Tonkin, N. LeRoy Poff and colleagues.
  • Conservation performance of tropical protected areas: How important is management?
    • Source: Conservation Letter
    • Author(s): Judith Schleicher  Carlos A. Peres  Nigel Leader‐Williams
    • Abstract: Increasing the coverage of effectively managed protected areas (PAs) is a key focus of the 2020 Aichi biodiversity targets. PA management has received considerable attention, often based on the widely held, but rarely examined, assumption that positive conservation outcomes will result from…
  • A manifesto for predictive conservation
    • Source: Biological Conservation, Volume 237
    • Author(s): Henry Travers et al.
    • Abstract: Increasing the coverage of effectively managed protected areas (PAs) is a key focus of the 2020 Aichi biodiversity targets. PA management has received considerable attention, often based on the widely held, but rarely examined
