Novus participant Lindsey Gillson (University of Cape Town) recently published a new book titled Biodiversity Conservation and Environmental Change: Using paleoecology to manage dynamic landscapes in the Anthropocene. The text integrates perspectives from archaeology, environmental history, and paleoecology to address long-term conservation and ecosystem management issues including climate change, fire management, and re-wilding. The book has received very positive reviews from both Trends in Ecology and Evolution and The Anthropocene. The text is available for pre-order through Oxford University Press.
