CBO researcher part of effort to set standard for identifying areas of significance to global biodiversity

Penny Langhammer, CBO research affiliate and ASU adjunct professor of biology in the School of Life Sciences, travels the world to help develop an international standard for the identification of Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs). Langhammer serves as co-chair of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Joint Task Force on Biodiversity and Protected Areas, which is working to establish criteria to identify sites (KBAs) that contribute significantly to the global persistence of biodiversity. Her insights on the IUCN project were featured in a recent article in ASU Now.
