Georgina Mace said:
"I am honoured to take over the Chairmanship of DIVERSITAS. I thank Hal Mooney for all the outstanding work he has done over the past few years to inspire our science and the networks to support it within DIVERSITAS. The Rio+20 process and the science that can contribute to making better decisions for the Earth system will be priorities for us this year, and I look forward to working with all our networks to ensure that we can make relevant contributions from biodiversity science."
