Come along for this very special lunchtime talk to find out about the future of biodiversity! Feel free to bring your own lunch, but light refreshments will be also provided.

Rapid expansion of agriculture in the tropics has resulted in high rates of rainforest loss and fragmentation in many countries. Conversion of forest to agriculture, such as oil palm plantation, usually results in a dramatic reduction in biodiversity and fundamental shifts in the functioning of tropical ecosystems. We will discuss what can be done to conserve global biodiversity while also maintaining ecosystem functioning and productivity in tropical ecosystems.
