A new paper written by Environment Institute members, Professor Barry Brook and Professor Corey Bradshaw has been made available online and will soon be published in the Journal Biological Conservation.
The paper titled ‘Strange bedfellows? Techno-fixes to solve the big conservation issues in southern Asia’ addresses the enormous conservation challenges facing mega-biodiverse South and Southeast
Asia in the 21st century. Many human endeavours,including; the effects of rampant deforestation, logging, biofuel cropping, invasive species expansion, and the synergies of climate change, drought, fire and sea-level rise have affected the habitat of these regions and the paper suggests that although small-scale conservation management might assist some species and habitats, the broader sweep of problems requires big thinking and some radical solutions.
Read and dowload the paper to find out why Barry and Corey suggest “we need pragmatic, real-world fixes – implemented in time, and at sufficient scale, to make a meaningful difference.
