Science Communications

The lack of inclusion of scientific data into public policy is a contributing factor to the environmental problems that the world is facing. There have been few efforts to disseminate results that demonstrate scientific conclusions regarding the management and economic valuation of ecosystem services. To meet this challenge, we are applying creative and innovative communication tools that allow us to bring relevant scientific discoveries and information into the mainstream and into the hands of decision makers.
