Celebrate International Day for Biological Diversity



Celebrating 25 Years of Action for Biodiversity


Each year on May 22nd, the Convention on Biological Diversity celebrates International Day for Biological Diversity. This year’s theme, Celebrating 25 Years of Action for Biodiversity, celebrates the science and progress made to preserve biodiversity on Earth.

Wiley is proud to present this special collection of over 100 research articles, highlighting the work our authors, editors and researchers are doing to advance the understanding, protection, and preservation one of our greatest assets - our biodiversity.

The articles below are free to share, read and download until July 22nd. We hope you enjoy!
