Dear ASCees

Conservation and genes – Decision Point #84 is now available

You will have often heard that biodiversity conservation isn’t just about species. It’s just as much about genes and ecosystems. But what does that actually mean when it comes to environmental decision making. Our final issue of Decision Point for 2014 reflects on this very issue.

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

In issue #84 you'll find the following stories:

1. National parks and threatened species

2. Species numbers & phylogenetic diversity
Joe Bennett on how you might prioritise genetic values

3. Burning issues for black cockatoos

4. Ecological disturbance & genes

5. Genes and geography
In search of surrogates of genetic variation

6. Conservation in the West Indian Ocean
A CEED/NERP workshop report

7. A new list to frame conservation

8. Conservation talk in Oceania
