Event Description

This week’s Cambridge Conservation Initiative Seminar will be presented by Dr Maria Dornelas from the University of St Andrews

“We typically assume that recent times have seen biodiversity loss everywhere. In this talk I discuss how global compilations of biodiversity data are unveiling a nuanced picture of biodiversity change. Biodiversity trends vary substantially: with spatial scale, across space and among taxa. We see pervasive compositional change, but a complex mosaic of losses and gains of species, as well as winners and losers in population trends.”
