Marxan and relatives: Software for spatial conservation prioritization
Mathematical Methods for Identifying Representative Reserve Networks
We focus on a particular class of reserve design problem where the goal is to achieve some minimum representation of biodiversity features for the smallest possible cost.
Zero tolerance ecology: improving ecological inference by modelling the source of zero observations.

A common feature of ecological data sets is their tendency to contain many zero values. Expand
Predicting species distributions for conservation decisions
- A. Guisan, R. Tingley, +20 authors Y. Buckley
- Computer Science, Biology
- Ecology letters
- 17 October 2013
We encourage species distribution modellers to get involved in real decision-making processes that will benefit from their technical input; this strategy has the potential to better bridge theory and practice, and contribute to improve both scientific knowledge and conservation outcomes. Expand
Recruitment dynamics in complex life cycles.
Organisms living in the marine rocky intertidal zone compete for space. This, together with predation, physical disruption, and differing species tolerances to physiological stress, explains the… Expand
Marxan with Zones: Software for optimal conservation based land- and sea-use zoning
- Matthew E. Watts, I. Ball, +6 authors H. Possingham
- Computer Science
- Environ. Model. Softw.
- 1 December 2009
We introduce Marxan with Zones, a decision support tool that provides land-use zoning options in geographical regions for biodiversity conservation. Expand
Spatial conservation prioritization: Quantitative methods and computational tools
Habitat loss and deterioration, climate change, and economic pressures for resource extraction have all led to a global loss of biodiversity. The limited resources available for conservation need to… Expand
Population models for marine reserve design: A retrospective and prospective synthesis
We synthesize results from existing models of marine reserves to identify key theoretical issues that appear to be well understood, as well as issues in need of further exploration. Models of marine… Expand
Assisted Colonization and Rapid Climate Change
- O. Hoegh-Guldberg, L. Hughes, +4 authors C. Thomas

Moving species outside their historic ranges may mitigate loss of biodiversity in the face of global climate change.
Pelagic protected areas: the missing dimension in ocean conservation.
- E. Game, H. Grantham, +7 authors A. Richardson
- Geography, Medicine
- Trends in ecology & evolution
- 1 July 2009
Fewer protected areas exist in the pelagic ocean than any other ecosystem on Earth. Although there is increasing support for marine protected areas (MPAs) as a tool for pelagic conservation, there… Expand
