Future oriented conservation: knowledge governance: uncertainty and learning

Author(s): Carina Wyborn, Lorrae van Kerkhoff, Michael Dunlop, Nigel Dudley and Oscar Guevara
Publisher: Biodiversity and Conservation, 2016

Despite significant progress in understanding climate risks, adaptation efforts in biodiversity conservation remain limited. This paper outlines an approach to future-oriented conservation that combines the capacities to anticipate future ecological change; to understand the implications of that change for social, political and ecological values; and the ability to engage with the governance (and politics) of adaptation.

Global Standard for the Identification of Key Biodiversity Areas

Author(s): Thomas Brooks, Annabelle Cuttelod, Naamal De Silva, Nigel Dudley,Lincoln Fishpool, Penny Langhammer, Jon Paul Rodríguez, Carlo Rondinini, Bob Smith and Stephen Woodley
Publisher: IUCN, 2016

These standards build on more than 30 years of experience in identifying important sites for different taxonomic, ecological and thematic subsets of biodiversity, including Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas, Alliance for Zero Extinction sites, Important Plant Areas and many others. The KBA Standard aims to: 1) Harmonise existing approaches to the identification of important sites for biodiversity; 2) Support the identification of important sites for elements of biodiversity not considered in existing approaches; 3) Provide a system that can be applied consistently and in a repeatable manner by different users and institutions in different places and over time; 4) Ensure that KBA identification is objective, transparent and rigorous through application of quantitative thresholds; and 5) Provide decision-makers with an improved understanding of why particular sites are important for biodiversity.

Authenticity in Nature: Making Choices about the Naturalness of Ecosystems

Author(s): Nigel Dudley
Publisher: Earthscan, 2011

In this book Nigel examines the concept of naturalness in ecosystems, discusses its values and considers choices about the level of naturalness in conservation efforts.Reviewed in Nature (447) by Shahid Naeem, professor of ecology at Columbia University, states: "his hypothesis comes from a thoughtful examination of various attempts to define 'natural' and 'wild' — by scientists, philosophers, managers, non-governmental organizations and policy-makers. Dudley demonstrates that there is neither coherence nor consensus as to what constitutes naturalness or wildness. He suggests that we focus instead on “authenticity” ... a web of interacting species  that provides stable ecosystem functions and services"

Living Forests Report: Chapter 2: Forests and Energy

Author(s): Editor in Chief: Rod Taylor; Technical Editors: Nigel Dudley, László Máthé, Michael Obersteiner and Sue Stolton
Publisher: WWF, 2011

The second chapter in WWF's Living Forest Report uses the Living Forests Model, created in collaboration with the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis, to examine the land use implications of two key WWF targets: reducing deforestation to near zero by 2020 and meeting 100 per cent of humanity’s energy needs with renewable sources by 2050. The model shows that we can protect forests and switch to renewable energy, but not unless we manage our resources and our levels of consumption sustainably.

Living Forests Report: Chapter 1

Author(s): Editor in Chief: Rod Taylor; Technical Editors: Nigel Dudley, Michael Obersteiner and Sue Stolton
Publisher: WWF, 2011

During the 2011 International Year of Forests, WWF’s Living Forests Report is part of a year‑long conversation with partners, policymakers, and business about how to protect, conserve, sustainably use, and govern the world’s forests in the 21st century. To help understand how best to manage the often competing demands of our forests, WWF developed the Living Forests Model with the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA). The model will be used in a series of chapters released throughout 2011 to explore various global land-use scenarios. It calculates the effect of forces such as population growth and consumer demand, and describes possible consequences on key areas such as food production, climate change, biodiversity, commodity prices and economic development. This first chapter introduces the model and the themes to be discussed throughout the year.

Religious following in biodiversity hotspots: challenges and opportunities for conservation and development

Author(s): Shonil A. Bhagwat, Nigel Dudley and Stuart R. Harrop
Publisher: Conservation Letters, 2011

World religions have historically advocated ethical and moral codes of conduct which can be supportive of these objectives. But can religions play a direct role in conservation and development? This paper examines the potential of religions in facilitating biodiversity conservation and poverty alleviation. A quantitative analysis of countries represented within Conservation International’s list of Biodiversity Hotspots suggests a high level of plurality of religious following, but also a significant need for economic development and environmental conservation. The paper suggests that partnerships between conservation and development organizations and mainstream, as well as minor, faith groups might provide a greater public legitimacy and provide capability to mobilize mass support for biodiversity conservation and poverty alleviation.

The potential of forest reserves for augmenting the protected area network in Africa

Author(s): Neil Burgess, Colby Loucks, Sue Stolton and Nigel Dudley
Publisher: Oryx, 41:2 151-159, April 2007

The protected area network of Africa has grown from nothing to more than 2 million km2 over the past 100 years. The network is considerable; but gaps remain in some biomes and priority areas for biodiversity conservation. Forest reserves managed by Forest Departments are typically excluded from global protected area lists, but in Africa are found in 23 countries and could add considerably to the conservation estate. This paper discusses how some African forest reserves have a legally defined role in biodiversity conservation, and are strictly protected; and thus fit criteria for protected areas. By working with African forest departments we can help develop a more comprehensive protected area network without creating additional new reserves.

Measuring sustainable use: A draft methodology for including areas with biodiversity-compatible management strategies in ecoregion planning

Author(s): By Sue Stolton and Nigel Dudley
Publisher: The Nature Conservancy, 2005

It is now widely recognised that protected areas cannot protect the world’s biodiversity on their own. Networks of protected areas need to be integrated with other 'conserved areas', to build up biodiversity compatible mosaics of land and water, which in total support biodiversity. One particular challenge is how the rather nebulous concept of 'sustainable use' can be measured, along with its contribution to biodiversity conservation plans.

The Nature Conservancy plans to track the status of sustainable use areas across South America, Central America and parts of Asia Pacific in the next few years. This discussion paper outlines some proposals for how The Nature Conservancy could start to measure and map the conserved areas that provide benefits to biodiversity.

A Midsummer Night's Nightmare? The future of UK woodland in the face of climate change

Author(s): Principal author Nigel Dudley, Managing editor Ruth Johnson
Publisher: Woodland Trust, UK, 2001

 This report, published by the Woodland Trust, examines the threats to the UK's native woodland as a result of climate change. It shows that native woods of oak, beech, ash and Caledonian pine are likely to suffer increased stress and declines under expected climate change. There have already been dramatic changes in seasonality amongst UK species, leading to changes in competitive ability and lifecycle. Key responses identified in the report included a landscape-level approach to protection, restoration and extension of native woodlands to build up core areas of high quality woodland that research suggests are most likely to be able to withstand climate changes. The Trust is also calling for members and others to monitor year-by-year changes in leaf and bud break and other seasonal patterns such as arrival of migratory birds and appearance of butterflies and moths.
