All Is Not Loss: Plant Biodiversity in the Anthropocene

  title={All Is Not Loss: Plant Biodiversity in the Anthropocene},
  author={Erle C. Ellis and Erica C. Antill and Holger Kreft},
  booktitle={PloS one},
Anthropogenic global changes in biodiversity are generally portrayed in terms of massive native species losses or invasions caused by recent human disturbance. Yet these biodiversity changes and others caused directly by human populations and their use of land tend to co-occur as long-term biodiversity change processes in the Anthropocene. Here we explore contemporary anthropogenic global patterns in vascular plant species richness at regional landscape scales by combining spatially explicit… CONTINUE READING
