Scientific discussion meeting organised by Professor Jonathan Bridle, Professor Andrew Balmford FRS, Professor Sarah Durant, Professor Kate Jones, Professor Richard Pearson, Professor Andy Purvis and Professor Vincent Savolainen.

Our understanding of the patterns and rate of biodiversity loss, and their consequences for human societies has been transformed by the ideas, insight and energy of Georgina Mace (1953–2020). This meeting will highlight how Georgina’s work repeatedly changed the conversation about how we measure biodiversity, its value, and our relationship with nature, and highlight scientists building on her enormous accomplishments.

The schedule of talks and speaker biographies and abstracts will be available soon. Meeting papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B.
