Goals and subtargets

As outlined in the 2005 Ontario Biodiversity Strategy (PDF, 1980 KB), the purpose of the Science Forum is to

  1. Focus the biodiversity science agenda and
  2. Foster science partnerships by identifying knowledge gaps and recommending science priorities in areas such as:
    • Improving our understanding of ecosystem functions and relationships
    • Evaluating existing and aiding the development of new habitat/ecosystem and species/population management guides, best management practices, and other conservation tools
    • Improving our understanding of the economic and non-economic valuation of biodiversity
    • Identifying gaps in available expertise and recommending solutions to address such gaps
    • Providing direction to science needs and initiatives to support biodiversity conservation
    • Supporting enhanced science transfer and training
