University of St Andrews

Centre for Biological Diversity

The Centre for Biological Diversity (CBD) is a new initiative building on St Andrews' strengths in fundamental and applied research into the origins and maintenance of biodiversity. The CBD has strong collaborative links with researchers found across the University in the Schools of Biology, Psychology, Geography & GeoSciences, Mathematics and Management.

The Centre weaves together traditionally separate strands of research, such as evolution, behaviour, ecology, molecular biology and biodiversity to advance the science that underpins the diversity of life and contributes pro-actively to policy that protects it.

The Centre also has well developed strengths in genetic analysis, biodiversity metrics and knowledge transfer of biodiversity research into policy.
