Virtual Issue: Conserving European biodiversity: lessons from the science-policy interface
Edited by: Philip E. Hulme
To celebrate the International Year of Biodiversity, the Journal of Applied Ecology is launching a virtual issue on the management of biodiversity to coincide with the Green Week conference. Twenty of the most influential papers that bridge the policy-science divide relating to biodiversity published by the Journal of Applied Ecology over the last five years have been brought together in a single issue.
These papers have a largely European focus and in many cases reflect the important role of European Union funding in bringing together researchers from across the region to work on shared issues relating to biodiversity management. Although perhaps not widely regarded as a global biodiversity hotspot, Europe has been the platform for several pioneering projects that have bridged the cultural, political and environmental diversity of the region to provide new insights into managing biodiversity.
These articles should help inform the ever diverse set of biodiversity stakeholders on the path to be taken by EU policies on biodiversity and nature policies post-2010 as well as the economic dimension of biodiversity and ecosystem services.
