This is the The Botanical Garden Biodiversity Lecture 2012
Summary: This talk will examine how historical and palaeoecological records have much to offer to current conservation policy and practice. Palaeoecological records from some of the world's best known biodiversity hotspots will feature, including the Galapagos, Western Ghats, Madagascar and Mexico's Sierra de Manatalan. These examples will demonstrate how such records can often provide a more scientifically defensible basis for conservation decisions than those based on only contemporary records.
