Norman Myers

Biography

Norman Myers is a fellow of the University of Oxford and an adjunct professor at Duke University. In the early 1970s he was the first to demonstrate that we are in the opening phase of a mass extinction of species. In the late 1980s he propounded the conservation strategy of identifying biodiversity hotspots, showing that roughly two-fifths of all species are confined to just 1.4 percent of the planet's land surface.
