Our new book chapter on Sustainability and Biodiversity has just been published in the 2nd Edition of Simon Levin's Encyclopedia of Biodiversity. This paper emerged from an NCEAS Distributed Graduate Seminar that students and I participated in while I was at Florida International University. The chapter is aimed at a sophisticated lay audience, and discusses various definitions and components of sustainability and their relationship to and dependence on biodiversity. I can't link to the specific article, but you can obtain one by contacting me directly.
