RLE actively  participated - with two presentations - in this year’s  Boden Research Conference, which took place May 8-9 in Canberra, Australia.

Defining the appropriate spatial scale for robust estimates of risks to species and ecosystems

IUCN scientists demonstrate that estimates of the Area of Occupancy (AOO) at scales proportional to the spatial extent of the threats are robust predictors of risks to biodiversity.

Selecting indicators for ecosystem risk assessments

Scientists develop a guide for selecting indicators for ecosystem risk assessments.
