The scientific output from our members creates the foundation for the activities at the centre. It is important that information spread concerning biodiversity, the threats against it and possible solutions have a strong scientific foundation. Together we not only explore and discover new things about biodiversity, we also share it in the scientific community as well as to the general public.
