Loss of our natural surroundings - and the biodiversity it harbours - has become such an issue that we are currently in the first era of mass extinction caused by man. For many years now, scientists have studied trends of degradation and biodiversity loss, providing essential insight the consequences of these trends ecosystem functioning. Yet, how much of this fundamental scientific insight has directly led to innovations approaches in conserving our natural surroundings and the biodiversity within?
This edition of Current Themes in Ecology addresses the role of fundamental science in contributing to the sustainable conservation of nature where we will use various points of entry:
We aim to address these different points of entry at which innovation in conservation can occur and present examples of how these have changed the way individual species or even complete ecosystems are being conserved.
