Global land-use change: causes and consequences for biodiversity

ZSL Science and Conservation event to discuss the environmental impacts of human-driven changes in global land use.


Speakers:
Andy Purvis, Natural History Museum and Imperial College London
Nathalie Pettorelli, Zoological Society of London
Kate Jones, Zoological Society of London and University College London
Drew Purves, Microsoft Research Cambridge

Chaired by Andrew Balmford, University of Cambridge

Land-use and land cover change is a primary cause of biodiversity loss, the second largest source of global carbon emissions, and has a major impact on the water cycle and climate. This meeting will highlight the anthropogenic causes of land use change, their impact on biodiversity and ecosystem services and present the new Land Use Forum London network. Join us to discuss how non-market and public benefits, such as wildlife conservation, could be incorporated into future land-use planning.
