METADATA
TitleDIVERSITAS - an international programme of biodiversity science
CreatorDIVERSITAS
DescriptionDIVERSITAS is a partnership of inter-governmental and non-governmental organisations formed to promote, facilitate and catalyse scientific research on biodiversity – its origin, composition, ecosystem function, maintenance and conservation. The goal of DIVERSITAS is to provide accurate scientific information and predictive models of the status of biodiversity, to find ways to support a more sustainable use of the Earth's biotic resources, and to build a world-wide capacity for biodiversity science. In so doing, DIVERSITAS brings added value to national and regional biodiversity research projects. DIVERSITAS works through a set of four core projects – (1) bioGENESIS (in development); (2) bioDISCOVERY; (3) ecoSERVICES; and (4) bioSUSTAINABILITY. The core projects are supplemented by cross-cutting networks (including agroBIODIVERSITY, freshwaterBIODIVERSITY and the Global Mountain Biodiversity Assessment).
