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.
TLDR
A common feature of ecological data sets is their tendency to contain many zero values. Expand

Predicting species distributions for conservation decisions
TLDR
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 theExpand

Marxan with Zones: Software for optimal conservation based land- and sea-use zoning
TLDR
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 toExpand

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 marineExpand

Pelagic protected areas: the missing dimension in ocean conservation.
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, thereExpand
