Information - BG0.2 Biodiversity science in Europe: new tools and strategies (EuroDIVERSITY) (co-listed in ERE)
The EuroDIVERSITY Programme addresses the emergence of an integrated biodiversity science based on an understanding of the fundamental ecological and social processes that drive biodiversity changes, their impacts on ecosystem functioning and services, and societal responses to these changes. This session invites scientific contributions which aim to result in new tools and strategies for the conservation, restoration and sustainable use of biodiversity. Also research with a strong focus on generalisations across particular systems and on the generation and validation of theory relevant to experimental and empirical data are highly welcomed. This session offers in particular an overview of the EuroDIVERSITY Programme and aims to enrich our understanding of the broader implications of biodiversity change, given it is still very limited and represents one of the major challenges of today’s ecology. EuroDIVERSITY is financed by national funding agencies from 19 European countries, and the European Science Foundation (ESF), thanks to contract No. ERAS-CT-2003-980409 of the European Commission, DG Research, FP6.
