‘Borders and Biodiversity’
The complex impact geopolitical borders, other types of borders (state, protected area), and human conflicts have in impacting conservation and global biodiversity. This panel is especially timely considering the impacts the United States/Mexican border wall is likely to have on the immense biodiversity that exists in this region of the world. However, this topic will not be limited to this particular issue, instead, we use it as an example of the types of issues we hope to illuminate with this discussion.
