Projecting terrestrial biodiversity intactness with GLOBIO 4

The paper describes the updated GLOBIO model.Scenario‐based biodiversity modelling is a powerful approach to evaluate how possible future socio‐economic developments may affect biodiversity. Here, we evaluated the changes in terrestrial biodiversity intactness,...

Global patterns of current and future road infrastructure

Global patterns of road infrastructure.Georeferenced information on road infrastructure is essential for spatial planning, socio-economic assessments and environmental impact analyses. However, current publicly available global road maps are outdated and biased. In...

The impact of hunting on tropical mammal and bird populations

Hunting is a major driver of biodiversity loss, but a systematic large-scale estimate of hunting-induced defaunation is lacking.Hunting is a major driver of biodiversity loss, but a systematic large-scale estimate of hunting-induced defaunation is lacking. We...

Quantifying Biodiversity Losses Due to Human Consumption

A Global-Scale Footprint Analysis.It is increasingly recognized that human consumption leads to considerable losses of biodiversity. This study is the first to systematically quantify these losses in relation to land use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated...

Future hotspots of mammal loss

Assessing the geography and extent of projected changes in suitable habitat for terrestrial mammals.Current levels of endangerment and historical trends of species and habitats are the main criteria used to direct conservation efforts globally. Estimates of future...
