Biodiversity Measures in Different Biomes: The Challenge for the Next Decade

A challenging objective of the Convention on Biological Diversity is to reduce the present rate of biodiversity loss by 2010. Moreover, evaluation of the success of nation states in meeting this challenge requires using a suite of biodiversity measures and an understanding of the degree to which these various measures track each other across a range of biomes. The seed grant provided by APN will bring the collaborating scientists and other stakeholders together in a scoping workshop to discuss the most effective way of addressing this problem while involving both scientists and policy-makers.
