  • AI empowers conservation biology
    • Source: Nature
    • Author(s): Roberta Kwok
    • Faced with mountains of image and audio data, researchers are turning to artificial intelligence to answer pressing ecological questions.
  • Global habitat loss and extinction risk of terrestrial vertebrates under future land-use-change scenarios
    • Source: Nature Climate Change
    • Authors: Ryan P. Powers and Walter Jetz
    • Abstract: Habitat transformations caused by human land-use change are considered major drivers of ongoing biodiversity loss and their impact on biodiversity is expected to increase further this century. Here, we used global decadal land-use projections to year 2070 for a range of shared socioeconomic pathways, which are linked to particular representative concentration pathways…
  • Embracing diverse worldviews to share planet Earth
    • Source: Conservation Biology
    • Authors: Florent Kohler, Timothy G. Holland, Janne S. Kotiaho et al.
    • Abstract: Leading societies toward a more sustainable, equitably shared, and environmentally just future requires elevating and strengthening conversations on the non‐material and perhaps unquantifiable values of non‐human nature to humanity. Debates among conservationists relating to the appropriateness…
  • Marine heatwaves threaten global biodiversity and the provision of ecosystem services
    • Source: Nature Climate Change
    • Authors: Dan Smale, Thomas Wernberg, Eric Oliver et al.
    • Abstract: The global ocean has warmed substantially over the past century, with far-reaching implications for marine ecosystems1. Concurrent with long-term persistent warming, discrete periods of extreme regional ocean warming (marine heatwaves, MHWs) have increased in frequency2. Here we quantify trends and attributes of MHWs across all ocean basins and examine their biological impacts from species to ecosystems…
  • Marine protected areas enhance coral reef functioning by promoting fish biodiversity
    • Source: Conservation Letters
    • Authors: Zachary M. Topor, Douglas B. Rasher, J. Emmett Duffy, Simon J. Brandl
    • Abstract: Preserving biodiversity and ecosystem function in the Anthropocene is one of humanity’s greatest challenges. Ecosystem‐based management and area closures are considered an effective way to maintain ecological processes, especially in marine systems. Although there is strong evidence that such…
