Dr Georgina Mace, UCL Centre for Biodiversity & Environment Research
Biodiversity plays many roles in the natural world, some of which are critical to human health and wellbeing, but it is in rapid decline: the "biodiversity crisis". Yet the value and importance of biodiversity is perceived very differently in various parts of society; consider, for example, the different perspectives of land use planners, natural resource managers, conservation biologists and naturalists. As the demand for resources escalates everywhere, it is becoming more important to understand the role of biodiversity and its values. I will review the status and trends of global biodiversity and then discuss how scientific research can contribute to a more coherent assessment of why biodiversity matters.
