  The sixth and final edition of the RUBICODE newsletter was published in September 2009 and is now available to download.

  Report of the Final RUBICODE Workshop: "The Way Ahead in Ecosystem Service and Biodiversity Research" which took place in January 2009 is now available to download.

  A roadmap describing research priorities for ecosystem services and biodiversity conservation can be downloaded from the Outputs page.

  Nine reviews related to ecosystem service assessment on concepts, drivers, indicators, functional traits, values and habitat management strategies are available to download on the "Outputs" page.

Associates

RUBICODE undertook itís work programme in close cooperation with the European biodiversity research community to ensure the relevance of the new concepts and integrate different ideas into a widely accepted framework. Thus, RUBICODE involved a large number of Ďassociatesí or Ďexternal expertsí with a wide range of scientific viewpoints.

We intend to involve our associates in online conferences and discussions and in project workshops. Invitations for all events will be sent out by the responsible Work Package leaders. If associates are invited to a workshop and accept, their travel and subsistence will be paid. The time will unfortunately have to be their own.

Although we intend to invite all associates to at least one of the workshops, we canít guarantee that we will be able to coordinate invitations to that level at the moment.
