Biodiversity, Conservation & Restoration

Conservation of biodiversity ranks among the top global priorities for sustaining Earth's ecosystems.

Ongoing loss of biodiversity in forest ecosystems, occasioned by rapid land use and global climate change, has prompted concerns about the sustainability of forest ecosystems and the goods and services that they provide to humanity. Our goal is to contribute new knowledge and understanding of the impact on forest biodiversity and ecosystem function, with the aim of developing new conservation approaches to creating resistance and resilience amidst local and global environmental changes.
