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.

AIBS is pleased to announce that the following distinguished scholars will speak at the annual meeting.

  • Stephen Bocking (Environmental and Resource Studies Program, Trent University, Canada): "Defining Effective Science for Biodiversity Policy"
  • Jamie Rappaport Clark (Defenders of Wildlife): "The Endangered Species Act under Attack: The Dynamic Interplay between Science and Policy"
  • Daniel Esty (Law School and School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, Yale University): "From Science to Policy: Biodiversity Protection, Metrics, and Results"
  • Shahid Naeem (Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Environmental Biology, Columbia University): "Applications of Biodiversity Research to Human Well-being"
  • Richard B. Norgaard (Energy and Resources Group, University of California, Berkeley): "Values and Valuation in a Rapidly Changing World"
  • Stephen Polasky (Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior, University of Minnesota): "Valuing Ecosystem Services"

Group 1: Communicating about Science in Public and Policy Arenas

  • Chris Mooney (Washington correspondent, Seed magazine; author of The Republican War on Science): "Learning to Speak Science: How the Scientific Community Can Win Back Its Political Influence in America"
  • Matthew Nisbet (School
