Engaging and Learning for Conservation: Workshop on Public Participation in Scientific Research

Proceedings from the workshop, Engaging and Learning for Conservation: Public Participation in Scientific Research, held at the American Museum of Natural History on April 7 and 8, 2011. Public participation in scientific research (PPSR) refers to initiatives in which the public is involved in one or more phases of scientific research – from defining questions to using results – and encompasses citizen science, participatory monitoring, community science, and a variety of other endeavors and approaches. PPSR offers significant opportunities for biodiversity conservation by addressing the increasing demand for information and the need for action.
