10(4) Dec18: The Ethics of Biodiversity Conservation

We are proud to present our volume 10, issue 4 (December 2018) on the Ethics of Biodiversity Conservation, guest edited by Claire Lajaunie and Pierre Mazzega

As biodiversity is now being lost at an alarming rate, to an extent that some scientists refer to the current period as the 6th (or Anthropocene) Mass Extinction, conservation of biodiversity and ecosystems are highly promoted across many Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Concurrently, the link between biodiversity and human health is increasingly recognized – as in SDG 3 on health – underlining the importance of considering health in an integrative manner, taking into account not only human health but also animal and environmental health in a One Health perspective.

Several ethical questions arise from biodiversity conservation itself, but also from the interdisciplinary research so crucial to biodiversity conservation, and from the use of research in science and policy dialogues. Some of the ethical questions resulting from the most recent scientific investigations are considered in this special issue, by specialists of various research areas involved in biodiversity conservation.
