|Assessing the evidence for stakeholder engagement in biodiversity conservation. A comprehensive literature review by CBC researchers and collaborators, looking at the evidence regarding the role of local stakeholder engagement in achieving biodiversity conservation goals and identifying six dimensions of engagement processes that are critical for successful outcomes when a project is externally-driven.|
|CBC Software Developer Pete Ersts contributed to the study Multiple processes drive genetic structure of humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) populations across spatial scales, which looked at population structure in humpback whales in the south Atlantic and Indian oceans. The researchers found that geographic distance drove genetic structure, there were stronger differences among female breeding stocks than in males, and whales breeding in the Arabian seem to be distinct from the other basins studied. This new information can help in the management of whale populations that are still recovering from commercial whaling.|
|Conservation social science: Understanding and integrating human dimensions to improve conservation by CBC scientist Dr. Georgina Cullman and co-authors describes the unique contributions that the social sciences can make to conservation.|
|The book Curating the Future: Museums, Communities and Climate Change, with the chapter Food and Water Exhibitions: Lenses on Climate Change by CBC scientists Dr. Eleanor Sterling and Erin Betley, explores the way museums tackle the broad global issue of climate change, including the power of real objects and collections to stir hearts and minds, to engage communities affected by change.|
