Why do we map threats? Linking threat mapping with actions to make better conservation decisions [Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment]

by Frédéric Magné - published on , updated on

Spatial representations of threatening processes – “threat maps” – can identify where biodiversity is at risk, and are often used to identify priority locations for conservation. In doing so, decision makers are prone to making errors, either by assuming that the level of threat dictates spatial priorities for action or by relying primarily on the location of mapped threats to choose possible actions. We show that threat mapping can be a useful tool when incorporated within a transparent and repeatable structured decision-making (SDM) process.(...)
