Alongside researchers at the Nanjing Institute of Environmental Sciences, the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv), and the Institute of Biology at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU), the study, Ensuring effective implementation of the post-2020 global biodiversity targets, examines the global failure in delivering the Aichi Biodiversity Targets (strategic international goals adopted in 2010 to address the crisis of biodiversity loss).

Ecological integrity assessment (EIA) provides valuable information for documenting wetland conditions, and ecologically-based monitoring. The goal is to provide a succinct assessment of the composition, structure, processes, and connectivity of a wetland occurrence.
The first comprehensive conservation status assessment focusing exclusively on the 45 species occurring in North America
north of Mexico. Although most North American bats have large range sizes and large populations, as of 2015,
18–31% of the species were at risk (categorized as having vulnerable, imperiled, or critically imperiled
NatureServe conservation statuses) and therefore among the most imperiled terrestrial vertebrates on the continent.
