Prof Hans Ter Steege publishes in Science on how roads threaten Biodiversity

Roads are a major threat for biodiversity because they fragment the landscape and thus the ecosystems. Worldwide there are some 600.000 fragments. An international team of scientists made a worldmap and published it in academic journal Science. Hans ter Steege, researcher of tree diversity in the Amazone and connected to Naturalis and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam was part of this team.
