Applied Ecology and Conservation Biology
Our research focuses on developing and
applying quantitative methods to address questions in conservation biology and
environmental risk assessment.
Resit Akçakaya is selected to be a Coordinating Lead Author for IPBES deliverable on "Policy support tools and methodologies for scenario analysis and modelling of biodiversity and ecosystem services."
Resit Akçakaya is selected to be Regional Editor for North America of the journal Conservation Biology.
Matt defended his thesis... Congratulations Dr. Aiello-Lammens!
Our new paper on the predictability of species extinction risks due to climate change is published in Nature Climate Change. Read about our recent publications on climate change impacts on biodiversity.
