Sir Neil Chalmers seminar room, Darwin Centre LG16 (below Attenborough studio)
The PREDICTS project is an ongoing collaboration with UNEP-WCMC and others that aims to build a better global model than has been available previously of how local biodiversity responds to human impacts. We will introduce the project (and our lab), give an overview of the database one year into the project, and show some preliminary models of how land cover and the intensity of land use affect some simple measures of local diversity.
