"Biodiversity underpins the life-support system of our planet. Yet several factors, including human behaviour, have brought us to a critical point. The world is experiencing an unprecedented rate of species extinction, which may have far-reaching consequences for all life forms.

DIVERSITAS brings together biological, ecological and social sciences to address four key questions that underlie our limited understanding of the current situation.

  • How did biodiversity evolve in space and time to reach current state?
  • How much biodiversity exists and how does its change or loss affect the system as a whole?
  • How does biodiversity correspond to the delivery of ecosystem functions and services, and what is the true value of these commodities?
  • How can scientific investigation support policy and decision making to encourage more sustainable use of biodiversity?"
