PREDICTS version 2: from space to time

Since it began in 2012, PREDICTS has furthered our understanding of how different aspects of biodiversity respond to land-use pressures across the globe. The first phase of PREDICTS focussed on collating spatial comparisons, where biodiversity was sampled across multiple sites that differed in land use or intensity. This approach had
