The Ecology Centre, University of Queensland, St Lucia, QLD, 4072, Australia
Trends Ecol Evol 22:583-92. 2007..First, biodiversity is not static in time or space but generated and maintained by natural processes. Second, humans are altering the planet in diverse ways at ever faster rates...
- Accommodating dynamic oceanographic processes and pelagic biodiversity in marine conservation planningHedley S Grantham
The Ecology Centre and Centre for Applied Environmental Decision Analysis, University of Queensland, St Lucia, Australia
PLoS ONE 6:e16552. 2011..More generally, we argue that innovative methods are needed to conserve ephemeral and dynamic pelagic biodiversity...
- A new way to measure the world's protected area coverageLissa M Barr
School of Biological Sciences, University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia
PLoS ONE 6:e24707. 2011..Used in combination with total percentage protection, the Gini coefficient will improve the effectiveness of reporting on the growth of protected area coverage, paving the way for better representation of the world's biodiversity...
- A new method for conservation planning for the persistence of multiple speciesEmily Nicholson
The Ecology Centre, School of Integrative Biology, The University of Queensland, St Lucia, QLD 4072, Australia
Ecol Lett 9:1049-60. 2006..Unlike previous methods, we avoid designating arbitrary weightings between reserve size and configuration; rather, our method is based on population processes and is grounded in ecological theory...
- Conserving biodiversity efficiently: what to do, where, and whenKerrie A Wilson
The Ecology Centre, School of Integrative Biology, University of Queensland, St Lucia, Queensland, Australia
PLoS Biol 5:e223. 2007..Applying this new framework will ensure investment in actions that provide the most cost-effective outcomes for biodiversity conservation. This will help to minimise the misallocation of scarce conservation resources...

The Ecology Centre, The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Queensland, 4072, Australia
Environ Manage 35:527-43. 2005..Our review highlights the need for further development and evaluation of approaches to assess vulnerability and for comparisons of their relative effectiveness...
- Is conservation triage just smart decision making?Madeleine C Bottrill
The University of Queensland, The Applied Environmental Decision Analysis Centre, The Ecology Centre, Brisbane, QLD 4072, Australia
Trends Ecol Evol 23:649-54. 2008..However, triage is no more than the efficient allocation of conservation resources and we risk wasting scarce resources if we do not follow its basic principles...
