In the 10 Must Knows from Biodiversity Science 45 scientists present facts about biodiversity in a well-founded and generally intelligible way. They analyse the complex systems of the earth by highlighting ten key areas, each of which, in turn, is inextricably linked to all the others. And they show ways to stop the continued loss of species diversity and ecosystems, and to promote biodiversity. The underlying aim is to provide policy-makers and society with scientifically validated assessments of the latest knowledge to facilitate improved policy decisions and action at local, regional, national and global levels, in order to conserve the diversity of life – biodiversity.

These are the 10MustKnows 2022:

1. Achieving climate and biodiversity protection together

2. Strengthening planetary health

3. Considering hidden biodiversity

4. Promoting biocultural habitats

5. Using forests sustainably

6. Transforming agriculture

7. Protecting land and resources

8. Expanding transnational infrastructure and education for sustainability

9. Ensuring access and open use of research data

10. Setting biodiversity-friendly incentives
