Dear ASCees

‘Collaborate or croak’. The ‘croaking’ here is the decline of thousands of species as they slip towards the precipice of extinction. The ‘collaboration’ is the joint activity of multiple groups and individuals trying to save those species. In this issue of Decision Point we give you multiple reasons why understanding this collaboration is important.

Check it out for yourself at http://www.decision-point.com.au/

In issue #73 you'll find the following stories:

1. Gondwana Link and decision theory
Reflecting on the fruits of four years of collaborative research – page 4

2. Strategies to bridge the divide
Ways to help scientists and decision makers work together – page 6

3. Conservation and collaboration in the Mediterranean Sea
Tessa Mazor discusses how collaboration reduces conservation costs – page 8

4. Weighing up the costs of collaboration
Multiple actors working together in the landscape – page 11

5. Citizens in the woodwork

6. Of actors, weeds and fence lines

7. Research briefs

So, make a sound decision for yourself, download your copy today, print it out and take it away to read at your leisure (and then pass it on to a friend to justify the fact that you printed it out).
