Observations, indicators and scenarios of biodiversity and ecosystem services change — a framework to support policy and decision-making


Krug, Cornelia B; Schaepman, Michael E; Shannon, Lynne J; Cavender-Bares, Jeannine; Cheung, William; McIntyre, Peter B; Metzger, Jean Paul; Niinemets, Ülo; Obura, David O; Schmid, Bernhard; Strassburg, Bernardo B N; Van Teeffelen, Astrid J A; Weyl, Olaf L F; Yasuhara, Moriaki; Leadley, Paul W (2017). Observations, indicators and scenarios of biodiversity and ecosystem services change — a framework to support policy and decision-making. Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability, 29:198-206.

Abstract

Improving understanding of how biodiversity and ecosystems respond to environmental change is necessary to guide policy and management. To this end, the bioDISCOVERY project of the international programme on global change, Future Earth, initiates and supports international networks of scientists to advance research on monitoring and observations, scenarios and models, and assessments of biodiversity and ecosystems. bioDISCOVERY activities seek collective solutions to key research challenges, and provide support for the international science community by participating in the development of global databases. This global working-group approach is essential for directing cutting-edge science toward supporting international policies, addressing urgent environmental issues, and closing research gaps through transdisciplinary integration and mobilisation of the scientific community.
