On the decline of biodiversity due to area loss
Wow, what a start! Congrats to sDiv's newest Postdoc Petr Keil on new paper in Nature Communications, co-authored by sDiv Sabbatical Walter Jetz. He shows that the geometry of area loss is crucial to predict the loss of taxonomic, functional & phylogenetic diversity. He also nicely explained this in a BBC Radio interview (starting 47:51).
