Social research into the drivers of public attitudes towards new science and technologies shows that attitudes are driven by values and world views, which can be very different for those who are generally supportive of new technologies compared to those who are generally concerned about new technologies. Segmentation studies further define the(More)
Many ecosystems around the world are rapidly deteriorating due to both local and global pressures, and perhaps none so precipitously as coral reefs. Management of coral reefs through maintenance (e.g., marine-protected areas, catchment management to improve water quality), restoration, as well as global and national governmental agreements to reduce(More)

However, as the conclusions of any study are dependent on the data obtained, if more data had been obtained and analysed then different conclusions might have(More)
Values-based studies of people's attitudes towards science and technology not only provide great insights into what drives different attitudes to issues like climate change and genetically modified foods, but allow for segmenting the general public by homogeneous values. Such segmentations both provide better predictions of people's attitudes to new(More)
