Conservation Biology

Conservation biology focuses on the identification and description of habitats and ecosystems necessary to support species at risk, and the development of scientific tools to support the protection of these areas and the biotic interactions therein. BRAES researchers use a range of tools to examine how species may respond to changing environments, habitat loss, and modified landscapes. The results of this research are applied to address the effectiveness of conservation laws and policies and to inform decision-makers on how best to conserve biodiversity in terrestrial, marine and freshwater ecosystems.
