Although the proposal of this term was borne out of an acknowledgement of the negative changes we are imparting on the globe (e.g. climate change, pollution, coastal erosion, species extinctions), there has recently been action amongst a variety of disciplines aimed at achieving a 'good Anthropocene' that strives to balance societal needs and the preservation of the natural world. Here, we outline ways that the discipline of conservation physiology can help to delineate a hopeful, progressive and productive path for conservation in the Anthropocene and, specifically, achieve that vision. We focus on four primary ways that conservation physiology can contribute, as follows: (i) building a proactive approach to conservation; (ii) encouraging a pragmatic perspective; (iii) establishing an appreciation for environmental resilience; and (iv) informing and engaging the public and political arenas. As a collection of passionate individuals combining theory, technological advances, public engagement and a dedication to achieving conservation success, conservation physiologists are poised to make meaningful contributions to the productive, motivational and positive way forward that is necessary to curb and reverse negative human impact on the environment.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>van Kleunen, Mark</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2017-02-28T13:18:43Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Madliger, Christine L.</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Cooke, Steven J.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2017-02-15</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Lennox, Robert J.</dc:creator> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Love, Oliver P.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Lennox, Robert J.</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Love, Oliver P.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Franklin, Craig E.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Cooke, Steven J.</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2017-02-28T13:18:43Z</dc:date> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Rummer, Jodie L.</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>van Kleunen, Mark</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Franklin, Craig E.</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Hultine, Kevin R.</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Madliger, Christine L.</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Rummer, Jodie L.</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:rights>Attribution 4.0 International</dc:rights> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
