Island biodiversity in the Anthropocene: new research perspectives at AMAP

28/01/2021 from 11:00 to 12:00Webinar

Biodiversity is increasingly altered by global change while our understanding of how species, communities and ecosystems respond to natural and human-induced disturbances still remains limited. In these talks, we will introduce existing limitations of current approaches and how we plan to fill these gaps using two case studies, one on tropical cyclones (T. Ibanez) and the other on invasive alien plants (R. Pouteau). Both projects will focus on Pacific islands, which are largely recognized as epicentres of biodiversity loss. Ultimately, our projects aim to help mitigate locally the global biodiversity crisis.
