3000 data points, 13 different countries; and summer only just started! The MIREN Trail Survey is truly gathering speed. Find here a story fresh from the field about how it works. Interested to join? Find all information here!
GMBA is carrying out a first coarse assessment of the state of, trends in, and relations between biodiversity, ecosystem services, human wellbeing, and direct drivers in the world’s mountains. They herewith invite you to contribute to this assessment by completing their survey:
It should take you roughly 40 minutes to provide them with first-hand knowledge of immense value. They very much look forward to receiving your mountain assessment by May 31 2018 and thank you for your contribution.
We got a new paper out on the effect of mountain roads and non-native plant species on mountain biodiversity!
You can find the paper in Global Ecology and Biogeography here:

MIREN went to Évora, Portugal, for the meeting of the International Biogeography Society, where we learned how biogeography is improving the fundaments of our understanding of climate change, for past, present ànd future. Read a summary here:
