Humans are the single greatest cause of biodiversity change, raising concern that a sixth mass extinction event is now underway. Join us for this presentation that will give the evidence for this concern and also show the strides being made in our understanding of when and how rapid evolution can promote the recovery of biodiversity. Find out how current work in designing connected habitat networks may conserve biodiversity in heavily transformed landscapes now and into the future.
