Models of upland species’ distributions are improved by accounting for geodiversity (2018)
Journal Article
Bailey, J. J., Boyd, D. S., & Field, R. (2018). Models of upland species’ distributions are improved by accounting for geodiversity. Landscape Ecology, 33(12), 2071-2087. doi:10.1007/s10980-018-0723-z

Context: Recent research suggests that novel geodiversity data on landforms, hydrology and surface materials can improve biodiversity models at the landscape scale by quantifying abiotic variability more effectively than commonly used measures of spa... Read More

Combining geodiversity with climate and topography to account for threatened species richness (2016)
Journal Article
Tukiainen, H., Bailey, J. J., Field, R., Kangas, K., & Hjort, J. (in press). Combining geodiversity with climate and topography to account for threatened species richness. Conservation Biology, doi:10.1111/cobi.12799. ISSN 0888-8892

Improved understanding of threatened species diversity is important for long-term conservation planning and natural area management, especially under ongoing global change. Geodiversity – the diversity of earth surface materials, forms and processes... Read More
