DFG continues to strengthen biodiversity research
Date:10/23/2008

Biodiversity is fundamental to our life, providing food, drinking water and stable habitats. But biodiversity is currently in a crisis situation: the increasing loss of species around the world causes profound changes in our environment and threatens the functioning of ecosystems along with the services they provide. To better understand the role of biodiversity and be able to take action to protect it, its basics must be studied more fully. This requires cooperation and coordination of many disciplines and scientific approaches. The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) has now established a Senate Commission to better network biodiversity research in Germany and strengthen its international position.

Biodiversity research in Germany is not organised as an independent, single discipline. Rather, it includes many fields that have not collaborated closely in the past. The Senate Commission, which is set up for a period of six years, will give this new branch of science the opportunity to structure itself and find solutions to the urgent problems in this field. The Commission will also create a platform for coordinating the large DFG-funded networks for biodiversity research. Furthermore, it is given the tasks of advising the research community as well as policymakers and of representing German biodiversity research in international networks. In addition, it will look at the current research infrastructure in order to recommend and support measures to improve it.

By establishing this Senate Commission, the DFG continues its efforts to strengthen biodiversity research. The DFG has funded basic research in this field for many years, on topics ranging from recording existing diversity to investigating the functions of biodiversity to understanding species richness as a result of ongoing evolution. In addition to numerous individual projects, the DFG funds several large research networks, including so-called biodiversi
