New Study Classifies the Entire Planet’s Ecosystems for the First Time

A global cross-disciplinary team of scientists, including Janet Franklin, San Diego State University biogeographer and National Academy of Sciences member, led by University of New South Wales, Sydney researchers, has developed the first comprehensive classification of the world’s ecosystems across land, rivers, wetlands, and seas. The ecosystem typology will enable more coordinated and effective biodiversity conservation, critical for human well-being.
