AIBS to hold annual meeting May 24-25 in Washington, DC

Plenary speakers and discussion groups will approach the topic of biodiversity from several interwoven perspectives. In recent years, policymakers have increasingly recognized the economic values associated with biodiversity, economists have increasingly found ways to incorporate values associated with biodiversity into economic thinking, and scientists have increasingly documented the variety of services that diverse ecosystems provide. Participants will have the opportunity to explore the many and diverse linkages among these fields.

  • Stephen Bocking (Environmental and Resource Studies Program, Trent University, Canada): "Defining Effective Science for Biodiversity Policy"
