Prof. Sandra Díaz and collaborators have recently published two articles presenting the new conceptual framework of IPBES, which was adopted at the second IBPES Plenary held in Antalya, Turkey on December 2013. One of the papers is a short article published in PLOS Biology providing an overview and showcasing the Conceptual Framework’s importance for IPBES and the wider community; while an extended article in Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability contains the Conceptual Framework in full detail, with background and examples.
