Monitor Biodiversity

Conserving biodiversity requires that we understand its distribution and status in space and time. Changes in the threats to biodiversity (human activities, climate shifts, disturbances, and pollution) necessitate a system that provides us with updates on where biodiversity is and how it is faring. As Noss (1990) points out, the hierarchical nature of biodiversity dictates that we monitor biodiversity at many levels: from mapping the way that animal and plant communities are distributed across landscapes to identifying the composition of those communities, tracking the increase or decrease in species' populations, and measuring the genetic structure of those populations. Designing such a comprehensive monitoring protocol continues to be a challenge that we must meet. However, only with such broadly gathered information can we design conservation strategies that reflect the most current threats to biodiversity.
