Welcome to the very first episode of CORDIScovery where we’re taking an in-depth look at the drive to maintain healthy ecosystems and biodiversity preservation, introducing you to three EU-funded scientists who are making valuable contributions to this cause.
In our first episode, Abigail introduces you to three EU-funded scientists working to protect the world’s biodiversity in the face of increasing levels of human intrusion and climate change. How does biodiversity depend on geography? What impact is the illegal trade in wildlife having on the communities that are involved, and on targeted species? What can be done to preserve areas? Do ‘protected areas’ protect? Answering these and other key questions are Pedro Cardoso of the Finnish Museum of Natural History, Rosaleen Duffy of the University of Sheffield, and Jonas Geldmann of the University of Copenhagen.
