GEO BON is continuously building up its network. GEO BON has more than 400 individual members from 45 different countries, including scientists, managers and practitioners active in biodiversity observation.
MBON is a “coalition of the willing” who agree to share knowledge and know-how to evaluate changes of biodiversity in the ocean, including data, products, protocols and methods, data systems and software.
The dynamics of species populations, i.e. the variation of species geographic distributions and abundances in space and time, represent one of the most fundamental aspects of biodiversity and its change.
In the past 20 years, work on ecosystem services has focused primarily on recognizing the multiple types of services that exist, in trying to quantify their temporal and spatial variations, and recognizing the numerous trade-offs that emerge when considering more than one service.
