  • Mapping relative extinction risk for biodiversity conservation
    • Source: Biological Conservation
    • Author: Xinghua Sui, Lingfeng Mao, Ying Liu, Fangliang He
    • Abstract: Biodiversity mapping (i.e., presenting and analyzing the distribution of biodiversity in space) is an essential tool in biogeography and con- servation biology (Brooks et al., 2006; Pimm et al., 2014). An important application of biodiversity maps is their use in modeling the geo- graphical distribution of extinction risk of species to understand the underlying causes of the risk and to allocate conservation priorities (Davies et al., 2006).
  • Global land change from 1982 to 2016
    • Source: Nature Ecology & Evolution
    • Authors: Xiao-Peng Song et al.
    • Abstract: Land change is a cause and consequence of global environmental change. Changes in land use and land cover considerably alter the Earth’s energy balance and biogeochemical cycles, which contributes to climate change and—in turn—affects land surface properties and the provision of ecosystem services.
