Our research is driven by societal need. We often work with policy-makers and practitioners to create management decisions and shape biodiversity policy agendas.
We have a range of collaborators and funders that aid our research.
The Group has four research themes:
Conserving biodiversity: a 2030 story
The Aichi Targets for Biodiversity are due to expire in 2020. The UN Sustainable Development Goals provide new opportunities.
They provide a framework for continuing what the Aichi Targets began. It's a continuing brief for safeguarding the planet’s species and preventing extinctions.
These scenarios, backed by our scientists' research and expertise, provide a vision. Researchers, policymakers, land managers and conservationists can work together to improve biodiversity.
