Monika Böhm is a Conservation Biologist and Research Fellow at the Institute of Zoology of the Zoological Society of London. Her primary research interest focuses assessing global patterns in extinction risk and threats to biodiversity, most recently through the use of the Sampled Red List Index (SRLI), derived from the IUCN Red List Index. Among the questions she addresses are: Which taxa are most threatened? Where can we find areas of high threat levels to resident biodiversity? What are the major threats which biodiversity is facing globally and locally? She is also involved in the National Red List project (www.nationalredlist.org), which encourages the development of National Red LIsts for conservation planning and climate change vulnerability assessments for reptiles, among other projects. She holds an MRes in Ecology and Environmental Management and a PhD in Environmental Science, both from the University of York. Her peer-reviewed studies appear in the top ecology and conservation science journals, including Biological Conservation, Conservation Biology, Ecography, Global Ecology and Biogeography and many others.
