Scientists are being pressured to provide convincing evidence of changes to contemporary biodiversity, to identify factors causing decline in biodiversity and to predict the impact of, and to suggest ways of combating, biodiversity loss. Altered species distributions, the changing nature of ecosystems and increased risks of extinction all have impacts in important areas of societal concern. Biologists and environmental scientists are asked to provide decision support for managing the biodiversity component of our environment at multiple scales (genomic, organism, habitat, ecosystem, landscape) to prevent and mitigate such losses. Generating the evidence and providing decision support relies, increasingly, on large collections of data held in digital formats, and the application of substantial computational capability and capacity to analyse and model such data, and to run simulations.
