We are using our unparalleled expertise in taxonomy to develop new molecular and digital tools for discovering biodiversity.

These tools will allow us to understand and preserve megadiverse ecosystems such as tropical rainforests by monitoring patterns and changes in their species diversity.

Breaking the taxonomic barrier

Our scientists are using new genomic technologies to rapidly assess biodiversity in complex ecosystems.

Big data on biodiversity

The PREDICTS team is undertaking the largest survey ever completed on the impact of humanity on local biodiversity.
