Combining Multiple Indicators to Determine Conservation Status Based on Expert Preferences

, , , , ,
Abstract Assessments of the conservation status of species depend on using multiple indicators, and most methods for combining indicators either assume that all indicators are equally important or they use some other pre-determined weighting.…
