-The Business of Biodiversity: Decision science for conservation problems
[abstract] Conservation science is booming and as it matures many of its
components are becoming more quantitative. In this talk I will discuss
how we have been using decision theory tools to solve a variety of
problems in conservation: the allocation of funds to hotspots and
threatened species, how much of our money should we spend on monitoring,
network theory and managing the East Asian Flyway, and building systems
of marine protected areas. We have found that the conservation policy
and management community is often poorly equipped and resistant to
quantitative transparent approaches to decision-making. The semantics
and jargon surrounding the world of modeling can make communication of
decision science thinking a problem.
