New Paper: Avoiding a biodiversity collapse in tropical forest areas

Please visit senior author Corey Bradshaw’s blog

A new paper titled ‘Averting a biodiversity collapse in tropical forest protected areas‘ investigates the plight of the protected tropical reserves around the planet. The researchers argue that while most tropical reserves were helping with protection of their forest, approximately half were struggling to maintain their original biodiversity. The researchers say that a better job needs to be done defending the protected areas.

The paper featuring Environment Institute member Corey Bradshaw as a senior author, along with over 200 researchers from around the world, has been published in Nature. The lead author of paper is William Laurance (James Cook University).
