MEASURING THE BIODIVERSITY OF OUR PLANET

BIODIVERSITY OBSERVATIONS FOR A BETTER FUTURE

Essential Biodiversity Variables (EBVs), defined as the derived measurements required to study, report, and manage biodiversity change, focusing on status and trend in elements of biodiversity. EBVs play the role of brokers between monitoring initiatives and decision makers. They provide the first level of abstraction between low-level primary observations and high-level indicators of biodiversity.
