19 Jan 2021 Honours projects now available
Two honours projects, at the University of Queensland, on language barriers in conservation science are now available and we are looking for students who are interested in joining our translatE project.
The first project aims to understand the prevalence and drivers of including non-English language studies in environmental evidence synthesis. See here for more detail.
The second project will be a collaboration with researchers at the Zoological Society of London and aims to test how literature searches in languages other than English can improve the coverage of data for the development of the Living Planet Index – one of the most important biodiversity indicators summarising changes in global vertebrate populations (www.livingplanetindex.org). See here for more detail.
Please contact us if you are interested or circulate the information to anyone who might be interested in working on these exciting projects!
