Abstract

Biodiversity is an inherently international concern, and a complex network of international organizations has evolved to study, regulate, develop, and conserve the organisms and ecosystem services that biodiversity comprises. Both intergovernmental and nongovernmental organizations have developed to foster international cooperation to address issues such as wildlife conservation, agricultural and forestry development, and biodiversity and ecosystem data. As global economic development has led to more complex connections among far-flung social–ecological systems, the interests and roles of these international organizations have become more intertwined.
