    • Cheap carbon and biodiversity co-benefits from forest regeneration in a hotspot of endemism . 

      Gilroy, James J.; Woodcock, Paul; Edwards, Felicity A.; Wheeler, Charlotte; Baptiste-Ballera, Brigitte L.G.; Medina-Uribe, Claudia A.; Haugaasen, Torbjørn; Edwards, David P. (Nature Research, 2014-04-28)
      Climate change and biodiversity loss can be addressed simultaneously by well-planned conservation policies, but this requires information on the alignment of co-benefits under different management actions.
    • Effect of scale on trait predictors of species responses to agriculture 

      Gilroy, James J.; Medina-Uribe, Claudia A.; Haugaasen, Torbjørn; Edwards, David P. (Wiley, 2014-11)
      La persistencia de las especies en terrenos alterados por el humano puede depender de factores que operan en múltiples escalas espaciales. Para entender los impactos antropogénicos sobre la biodiversidad, es útil examinar ...
    • Land-Sparing Agriculture Best Protects Avian Phylogenetic Diversity 

      Medina-Uribe, Claudia A.; Edwards, David E.; Gilroy, James J.; Thomas, Gavin H.; Haugaasen, Torbjørn (Cell Press, 2015-09-03)
      Appropriate management of farming is critical to slowing the biodiversity extinction crisis. Edwards et al. show that farming intensively while offsetting large natural reserves will save more phylogenetic diversity and ...
    • Managing Neotropical oil palm expansion to retain phylogenetic diversity 

      Prescott, Graham W.; Gilroy, James J.; Haugaasen, Torbjørn; Medina-Uribe, Claudia A.; Foster, William A.; Edwards, David P. (British Ecological Society, 2016-02)
      La expansión de la agricultura tropical es un importante motor de la crisis de extinción. Una cuestión clave es si las pérdidas de biodiversidad pueden ser minimizados mediante la restricción de la futura expansión de las ...
    • Minimizing the biodiversity impact of Neotropical oil palm development. 

      Gilroy, James J.; Prescot, Graham W.; Cárdenas, Johann S.; González del Pliego, Pamela; Sánchez, Andrés; Rojas-Murcia, Luis E.; Medina-Uribe, Claudia A.; Haugaasen, Torbjorn; Edwards, David P. (Wiley, 2014-08-30)
      Oil palm agriculture is rapidly expanding in the Neotropics, at the expense of a range of natural and seminatural habitats. A key question is how this expansion should be managed to reduce negative impacts on biodiversity.
    • Optimizing carbon storage and biodiversity protection in tropical agricultural landscapes. 

      Gilroy, James J.; Woodcock, Paul; Edwards, Felicity A.; Wheeler, Charlotte; Medina-Uribe, Claudia A.; Haugaasen, Torbjorn; Edwards, David P. (Wiley, 2014-07)
      With the rapidly expanding ecological footprint of agriculture, the design of farmed landscapes will play an increasingly important role for both carbon storage and biodiversity protection.
    • Reducing the impacts of Neotropical oil palm development on functional diversity 

      Prescott, Graham W.; Gilroy, James J.; Haugaasenc, Torbjørn; Medina-Uribe, Claudia A.; Foster, William A. (Elsevier, 2016-05)
      Large-scale conversion of natural habitats to agriculture reduces species richness and functional diversity, with important implications for the provision of many ecosystem services.
    • Surrounding habitats mediate the trade-off between land-sharing and land-sparing agriculture in the tropics 

      Gilroy, James J.; Edwards, Felicity A.; Medina-Uribe, Claudia A.; Haugaasen, Torbjørn; Edwards, David P. (British Ecological Society, 2014-10)
      Dos estrategias son a menudo promovidos para mitigar los efectos de la expansión de la agricultura sobre la biodiversidad: una integra hábitats de vida silvestre dentro de un radio tierras de cultivo (suelo compartir), y ...
    • Thermally buffered microhabitats recovery in tropical secondary forests following land abandonment. 

      González del Pliego, Pamela; Scheffers, Brett R.; Basham, EdmundW.; Woodcock, Paul; Wheeler, Charlotte; Gilroy, James J.; Medina-Uribe, Claudia A.; Haugaasen, Torbjørn; Freckleton, Rob P.; Edwards, David P. (Elsevier, 2016-09)
      Given the dramatic loss of tropical forests and accelerating climate change, secondary forest regeneration is increasingly recognised as being an important method for reversing losses in biodiversity and carbon stocks. The ...
