Diversitas (ejournal) - an international programme on biodiversity science
Biodiversity changes in rhythm with its own evolutionary and ecological dynamics, but also as a result of deliberate and unintentional human actions. In turn, it affects human societies, which have to adapt to these changes. In order to understand and predict this cycle of interactions, the mission of DIVERSITAS is to:
- promote an integrative biodiversity science, linking biological, ecological and social disciplines in an effort to produce socially relevant new knowledge; and
- provide the scientific basis for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity.
