Ecosystems are changing at a rate unprecedented in history, and new pressures are interacting to move systems into new states.
What are the real rates of species’ extinctions and impacts of key threatening processes that most imperil species?
What are the major evolutionary trajectories of species and how do they equip species to cope with the pressures of today?
What are the responses of biodiversity and ecosystems to habitat clearance, invasive species and climate change, and do we see evidence for resilience in these systems?
