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

ty exploratories a unique endeavour that creates an infrastructure for long-term ecosystem research across disciplines.

The work of these exploratories and of seven other major research projects is presented in a brochure entitled Biodiversity Research, which was published by the DFG in the spring of 2008 in conjunction with the ninth Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity in Bonn. This brochure shows a variety of topics and methodological approaches in biodiversity research and identifies future challenges. It was featured at the DFG's parliamentary evening on biodiversity research in September 2008, where the research community presented its work and formulated recommendations for policymakers. One of these recommendations pertains to the inclusion of basic research in the agenda of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).

The CBD was concluded in 1992 in Rio de Janeiro as an agreement under international law; Germany became a signatory in 1994. The agreement aims to maintain biological diversity, use its elements in a sustainable manner, and equitably share its benefits. These goals apply to research as well. It is important that it remains possible to conduct biodiversity research anywhere in the world. The CBD regulates the necessary access to biological resources, and the DFG strives to ensure that these regulations are designed with the needs of basic research in mind. The DFG helps scientists to plan and propose CBD-relevant research projects by providing guidelines and recommendations.
