ABSTRACT: Expansion of farming is the biggest driver of the global extinction crisis. In this talk I will explore options for minimising the biodiversity impact of farming, focusing on oil palm and cattle in Colombia. BIO: David Edwards is Professor of Conservation Science at the University of Sheffield, UK. He works at the nexus of land-use change, biodiversity and policy, and he has worked extensively in SE Asia and Colombia since 2006. His work has brought to light the impacts of tropical land-use change and habitat disturbance on biodiversity, and ecosystem functioning and services. He is on the Editorial Board of Current Biology.
