science. Improving communication among ecologists, educating
the public about the importance of ecological science,
providing resources for the conduct of ecological science, and
ensuring the appropriate use of ecological science in
environmental decision making by enhancing communication between the
ecological community and policy-makers are the goals of this
The mission of the Center for Conservation Biology Network
is to "help develop the technical means for the protection,
maintenance, and restoration of life on this planet - its species,
its ecological and evolutionary processes, and its particular and
total environment; to help raise awareness, educate, and encourage
personal involvement of the public and academics alike."
Created by Alan Thornhill at UC Irvine, the organization is also
supported by Rice University.
