JOURNAL ARTICLE : Exploring connections among nature, biodiversity, ecosystem services, and human health and well-being

A recent paper by Sandifer et al (2015) explores the opportunities to enhance health and biodiversity conservation. “Exploring connections among nature, biodiversity, ecosystem services, and human health and well-being: Opportunities to enhance health and biodiversity conservation”

 

Highlights

 

Evidence links biodiversity to ecosystem services (ES) and health to nature exposure.

A few novel studies link biodiversity exposure to improved health and well-being.

We provide a comprehensive summary of health effects of ES, nature and biodiversity.

Future research should address causation of health benefits and action mechanisms.

New multidisciplinary collaborations are needed to enhance health and conservation.
