The goal of the QCBS research program is to facilitate the emergence of an integrated biodiversity science. Read more…

Research axes

The QCBS structures its research activities around four axes:

Axis 1: Discovery and study of biodiversity – improving our basic knowledge about the diversity and distribution of organisms

Axis 2: Linking biodiversity to ecosystem functioning – deepening our understanding of the link between biodiversity and ecosystem processes and services

Axis 3: Ecosystem goods and services, and human well-being.

Axis 4: Human dimensions of biodiversity.

In addition to the four research axes, several multidisciplinary research themes integrate more than one research axis and have been developed to address local concerns: Cross axis research.
