Biodiversity Profile: Harperella

How is it doing? This wildflower, which looks a bit like a small Queen Anne’s Lace with white flowers and quill-like leaves, is globally imperiled (G2), and critically imperiled (S1) in seven U.S. states. It is listed as endangered under the U.S. Endangered Species Act.

Finding At-Risk Plants and Animals on Forest Lands

Foresters, wood-workers, and landowners sometimes have trouble incorporating at-risk plants and animals into their land management activities because of a lack of data on where these creatures are located.

The Most Important Places to Conserve in the Andes-Amazon

The Eastern Andes and the Western Amazon Basin are recognized as one of the world’s most important areas for biodiversity richness and uniqueness. However, the region’s countries are under pressure to increase access to land and develop natural resources to support economic growth. These impacts increase the urgency of knowing which of the region’s many elements of biodiversity are irreplaceable, and which places in the region are most important to conserve.

Along the Path

As a kid, I remember squinting through a magnifying glass at a tiny flower bud on the other side. I was fascinated by the different textures of the plant, and what all of the different veins and petals did. As I grew older, my appreciation for the marvels of nature increased. I eagerly learned about the complexities of how plants, animals, and ecosystems all work together, and I was fortunate to study the emerging field of conservation biology.
 
I am still fascinated by the world around us, and astounded by what science can teach us.
