-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.
