DIVERSITAS Science Plan

DIVERSITAS Science PlanProduced in 2002, the DIVERSITAS Science Plan outlines the overall research objectives for the newly restructured Programme. Under the chairmanship of Prof. Michel Loreau, the Scientific Committee developed a draft plan, which was then circulated for broader consultation. In 2003/2004, DIVERSITAS hosted a series of Scoping Meetings to develop more detailed Science Plans for each of the three Core Projects.

ICSU Series on Science for Development No. 10: Biodiversity, Science and Sustainable Development

ICSU Series on Science for Development No. 10: Biodiversity, Science and Sustainable DevelopmentIn addition to providing an introduction to 'the sixth instinction', this document highlights significant achievements since the Earth Summit (1992, Rio de Janeiro) that underline how human existence is dependent on biological diversity. It then goes on to describe a 'new' biodiversity science, which aims to provide the proper scientific basis for sustainable use of the Earth's biological resources.
