The death and life of biodiversity: modeling extinction and resilience on islands
Professor of Conservation Biology
I’m interested in how biology and the environment shape biodiversity in time and space.

Actions needed to achieve ambitious objectives of net gains in natural ecosystem area by 2030 and beyond
In late 2021, experts from around the world were approached to provide input to the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF)—the new framework under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) that will guide interventions to conserve biodiversity and ecosystem services for the next three decades.
Governments are negotiating actions intended to halt biodiversity loss and put it on a path to recovery by 2050. Here, we show that bending the curve for biodiversity is possible, but only if actions are implemented urgently and in an integrated manner. Connecting these actions to biodiversity outcomes and tracking prog- ress remain a challenge.
