University of New South Wales.
The study, in Conservation Biology, is the first comprehensive review
of more than 24,000 scientific publications related to conservation in the Oceanic
region. The authors identified six major threatening processes (habitat loss
and degradation, invasive species, climate change, overexploitation, pollution,
and wildlife disease) and developed a set of conservation policies for each threat.
