The Ecography paper 'Using historical data to assess the biogeography of population recovery' was featured in a National Geographic article.
As a result of the rebound in Hawaiian sea turtle numbers, some have called for the species to be removed from federal protection, de-listed as a threatened species, and for harvests to reopen. However, this study demonstrates that 80% of the historically major nesting sites for the population are extirpated or dramatically reduced and shows how this concentrates the risks posed by climate change.

Understanding how and why diversity varies systematically with elevation has been a focus of research in spatial ecology since the days of the earliest naturalists. Indeed, over the past 25 years, Ecography has served as a key outlet for many of the studies examining the underlying causes of elevational diversity gradients. This Virtual Issue highlights some of the key papers that have had (or may have) lasting impressions on the field.
