Monitoring California's Coastal Biodiversity With Community Science
Community science can generate biodiversity data at scales intractable for other approaches. We are building the capacity to use community science observations to monitor biodiversity on the California coast.
Planning for the Large-Scale Conservation of Biodiversity Dimensions
Given monetary constraints, large-scale biodiversity conservation policies need to be selective with respect to the areas and species they prioritize. Macroecological knowledge can help make those challenging decisions.
Understanding Past Distribution Changes of Species and Communities
Documenting and understanding how species and ecosystems have responded to environmental changes in the past is critical to improving our ability to predict their likely future responses.
Improving Predictions of Species' Future Distribution Changes
A large number of statistical approaches are being developed to forecast the potential future responses of species and communities to environmental change. But how good are those predictions?
Understanding How Biodiversity is Distributed in Space and Time
Understanding how and why biodiversity is distributed the way it is across space and time is key to generating reliable predictions of biodiversity in unexplored regions or future time periods.
