PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

New approaches to discovering biodiversity and understanding its response to climate change

From global to local scales, biodiversity - the variety of genes, species and ecosystems - is geographically patchy. Some geographic areas have more species than others (richness) and some have a higher proportion of unique diversity (endemism).
