The U.S. government and other nations are collecting the names of scientists who could serve on expert panels. The Ecological Society of America, a member of AIBS, is soliciting names and will forward its nominations to the U.S. government.

Nominations are sought in the following areas:

  • Pollination and food production;
  • Production and integration of assessments;
  • Scenario analysis and modeling of biodiversity and ecosystem services;
  • Methods for valuing biodiversity and nature’s benefits to people; and
  • A catalog of policy support tools and methodologies.

IPBES is a global program intended to strengthen the role of science in decision-making related to the conservation and sustainable management of biodiversity and ecosystem services.
