Abstract We should not be surprised by the scale of the challenge when trying to link a body of scientific knowledge to the complex, shifting and seemingly unpredictable world of policy, or to the massively decentralised, globally distributed world of conservation practice (Young et al., 2014). One side of the challenge is developing a consensual understanding of the science itself. By nature, scientific knowledge is continually progressing,
with theories, empirical data and new interpretations emerging all the time. Even within a single discipline, it can be hard to convey what is known at a particular point in time, and this often involves presenting
different scientific viewpoints. For instance, there is substantial variation around the world in public health advice regarding alcohol consumption, with ‘safe’ limits in the UK being 50% of those in the USA (Wood
et al., 2018). In conservation, the challenge is even greater, as relevant research cuts across the natural, physical and social sciences.
