The Applied Biodiversity Science Perspectives Series is a student-centered online publication dedicated to communicating conservation research to academic and non-academic audiences. The collection of articles, essays and reflections published annually shares the insights, opinions and experiences of undergraduates, graduate students and faculty involved in biodiversity conservation research at Texas A&M University and other universities worldwide.
By telling the stories of the complex, interconnected relationships between humans and the natural systems in which they live, the Perspective Series seeks to improve scientific communication and advance the overarching mission of the Applied Biodiversity Science (ABS) program at Texas A&M University. The ABS program’s mission is to bring multiple perspectives together—from ecology and psychology to genetics and anthropology—to train researchers to conduct research that addresses the global challenge of reducing the loss of biodiversity and its impacts on human livelihoods.
