This symposium is hosted by the Biodiversity Institute, an Oxford Martin School Institute

The annual Biodiversity Institute Symposium this year will tackle the subject of Biodiversity Resilience. Factors leading to the loss of resilience in social-ecological systems are the focus many excellent on-going research programmes and symposia. However, this two-day symposium aims to highlight the other side of the resilience research agenda – namely factors that promote and lead to resilience of biodiversity. The symposium will showcase ongoing research that examines the biotic and abiotic processes and mechanisms responsible for biodiversity resilience (ranging from genomics to landscape-scale), through to policies and management that ensure resilience of biodiversity now and in the future.

Speakers include:

  • Lord Robert May, University of Oxford
  • Jennifer Rowntree, University of Manchester
  • Tim Benton, UK Champion for Global Food Security, University of Leeds
  • Jon Ekstrom, The Biodiversity Consultancy
