Scientific discussion meeting organised by Dr Felix Forest, Professor Mark Chase FRS, Professor Keith Crandall and Dr Daniel Faith.

Event details

The integration of phylogenetic information with metrics of extinction risk such as the IUCN Red List provides powerful tools for the conservation of phylogenetic diversity. The meeting offered a detailed overview of the state of play in the field, presented advances and comparative analyses of methodologies and provided case studies that apply these methods to support conservation efforts.
