Ken Angielczyk says: "The focus for studying terrestrial extinction has basically been, 'Can we match up the pattern in the terrestrial realm with what's observed in oceans?' And the answer is, 'Not really,'" External link

Roger Benson says: "To figure out patterns of extinction based on hundreds of fossils we used a type of math called statistics. When a species disappears it could either have gone extinct, or it could still be out there, waiting to be discovered, but so far undetected," External link

Ken Angielczyk says: "The environmental changes that we are causing and the impacts we are having on animal and plant species are getting to the point where the scale is such that there isn't really anything in human history that is comparable," "The fossil record can give us some idea of what massive biodiversity crises are like and how they proceed" External link

Nigel Gibbs explained: “Loss or destruction to the habitat will remove a critical link in the recruitment and connectivity to adjacent habitats such as seagrass and coral reefs. Further analysis has to be made a priority to increase the baseline data already collected from this research. To guide management practices, like the development of MPAs for conservation. Limited coastal development and education on the importance of this ecosystem,” External link

Nigel Gibbs said: “With development taking place at a significantly higher rate at the Mt Hartman site. There is cause for concern. Habitat loss could result in a decline in species and the recruitment service that the ecosystem. Continuous development without careful planning may induce a trophic cascade and one species may be lost causing a domino effect in that e ecosystem,” “Based on these findings, careful planning is needed to guide development. Management efforts like EIAs and land use policies must be developed to mitigate against habitat destruction. Existing ecosystem protection acts/laws must be strictly adhered to, improved and enforced” External link

Martin Gilbert said: “Understanding how tigers are catching distemper is absolutely crucial to helping us design effective measures to minimize the conservation impact of the virus,” “Vaccinating tigers is hard to do, but our research shows that immunizing just two tigers within a small population each year can reduce the risk that CDV will cause extinction by almost seventy-five percent. At least in the Russian Far East, vaccinating local domestic dogs would not be an effective strategy to protect tigers” External link
