Dr. Robert Spies and Tim Bray interviewed Dr. Stuart Pimm, Doris Duke Professor of Conservation Ecology at Duke University. Dr. Pimm is a world leader in the study of present day extinctions and what can be done to prevent them. His research covers the reasons why species become extinct, how fast they do so, the global patterns of habitat loss and species extinction and the management consequences of this research.
It was a fun and insightful conversation with someone who has been, and continues to be, at the front lines of both research and action in the field of conservation biology. Listen to the entire conversation here.
