Biodiversity and Human Health

A new Future Brief focussing on the complex relationship between biodiversity and human health has been published and is free to download from:

The report explores the wealth of benefits for human health provided by biodiversity, which are being uncovered by scientists. Healthy ecosystems could help prevent the spread of dangerous diseases, urban green spaces can improve mental health, and new medicines inspired by nature are being developed, to name a few valuable ecosystem services. Policy implications of these developments are discussed.
