A new Special Issue in Pacific Conservation Biology edited by SCBO board members Vanessa Adams, Rebecca Spindler and Richard Kingsford is out now.
The special issue, timed to coincide with SCBO Brisbane 2016 offers local conservation solutions in Oceania to global problems, and captures the diversity of nations, cultures and environments in our region. The issue is organised by the major threats faced in the region: habitat loss, over exploitation and invasive species. Case studies, framed as coupled problem–solutions, include examples from Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific and contrast findings across regions and realms. There are successes and failures faced by conservation in this local region, and the analysis within this special issue offers lessons for conservation globally.
