Citizen science contribution to the monitoring of biodiversity responses to perturbations

The benefits of citizen science monitoring programs not only rely on the provision of very relevant datasets, but also contributes to raise awareness on current biodiversity issues and to foster pro-environmental behavior. Welcome to this seminar by Colin Fontaine at the Natural History Museum of Paris. Since it is on zoom everyone can join!

Information from Colin:

Documenting the responses of biodiversity to ongoing environmental changes needs data on large spatiotemporal scale, both to turn the clock back and to cover the wide range of actual perturbations. Such data are scarce and require important and sustained sampling effort. Citizen science biodiversity monitoring, by involving volunteers in data collection, is a way to achieve such sampling.

I will present two recently published research project based on the analysis of different types of citizen science datasets, one opportunistic and one protocoled, addressing the impact of global warming on pollinator phenology and the impact of habitat degradation on the stability of animal communities. The benefits of citizen science monitoring programs not only rely on the provision of very relevant datasets, but also contributes to raise awareness on current biodiversity issues and to foster pro-environmental behavior.
