  • Seminar Richard Primack "The Leading Edge of Conservation Biology: Technology, Human-Natural Systems, and Long-term Research"

    2015-03-10, 13:30

    Richard Primack is a Professor of Biology at Boston University and editor-in-chief at Biological Conservation. Abstract: I will discuss three of the most dynamic areas of research and new practice in conservation biology. First, new technology: conservation biologists are using drones and satellite data to detect illegal activities and monitor animal populations, environmental DNA to detect rare and invasive aquatic species, DNA barcoding to identify cryptic species, and a host of technologies to help establish citizen science networks. Second, balancing biodiversity protection with providing for humans, a timeless but urgent problem: researchers are evaluating the environmental impact of green technologies such as wind farms, valuing ecosystem services, involving people in conservation activities, and preventing illegal activities. And third, expanding long-term, large-scale research and conservation: conservationists are thinking and working productively at larger scales, establishing and connecting protected areas, assisting species migrations in response to climate change, detecting ecological mismatches among species, and evaluating the success of marine reserves, restoration projects, and secondary forests. Research and conservation practice in these three broad areas will shape much of conservation in coming years.
