The Conservation Science research group at the University of Melbourne and Deakin University

Our research focusses on solving problems in biodiversity conservation and ecosystem management. We have broad research interests, including measuring change in biodiversity, predicting the impacts of change, and making conservation decisions. Much of our work is at the ecosystem level, including ecosystem services and the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems. Headed by Emily Nicholson, we are based across the School of Agriculture, Food and Ecosystem Sciences at the University of Melbourne, and the School of Life and Environmental Sciences at Deakin University.
