Post-Doc Alums, Narcisa Pricope and Juliann Aukema collaborate with Professor Lopez-Carr and FEWS net on recently published PLOSOne article: “Biodiversity Areas under Threat: Overlap of Climate Change and Population Pressures on the World’s Biodiversity Priorities”.

Biodiversity Areas under Threat: Overlap of Climate Change and Population Pressures on the World’s Biodiversity Priorities

The article explores how places around the world with high or growing human populations and increased climate variability threaten the ecosystem services that humans depend upon. It expands on the ensuing cycle of ecological degradation and applies different theoretical conservation schemes. In aiming to identify both environmental and human high-risk areas, it determines where these conservation measures would make the most impact.
