Theme meeting: The past, present, and future of biodiversity

biodiversity
Theme meeting
Biodiversity is essential for human survival and well-being and yet is currently under serious threat. We come together across institutions in Sweden to address topics about how biodiversity has arisen in time and space, how it is currently distributed and how diverse it is, as well as how patterns and processes may change in the future under climate and land use change.

Following presentations by a wide group of BECC representatives, we will discuss how to better collaborate to understand the past, past, and future of biodiversity.
