There are others in the broader family



The Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis, was established as a Norwegian Centre of Excellence (CoE) in 2007. It is based at the Department of Biosciences, University of Oslo. It combines a broad spectrum of disciplines (such as population biology, statistical and mathematical modelling and genomics) to foster the concept of ecology as a driving force of evolution via selective processes, with a corresponding influence of evolutionary changes on ecology.




The Banff International Research Station (BIRS) is a joint Canada-US-Mexico initiative that provides an environment for creative interaction and the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, and with related sciences and industry.




The International Centre for Mathematical Sciences in Edinburgh supports research in the mathematical sciences




The Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach in Germany serves the promotion of science and research through the application of mathematics.




DataONE (Observation Network for Earth)

DataONE is part of the NSF DataNet initiative, which is designed to provide archivial infrastructure for science data. DataONE focuses on data and data users in earth and environmental sciences.




The National Ecological Observatory Network is a continental-scale observatory that measures the causes and effects of climate change, land use change and invasive species on U.S. ecosystems. We provide freely available data, educational resources and scientific infrastructure for research. It will have 60 sites strategically placed around the USA, and expects to be in full operation in 2017.




The Centre for Ecology & Hydrology is the UK's Centre of Excellence for integrated research in terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems and their interaction with the atmosphere. As part of the Natural Environment Research Council, CEH provides National Capability based on innovative, independent and interdisciplinary science and long-term environmental monitoring, forming an integral part of NERC's vision and strategy. It is a member of PEER, the Partnership for European Environmental Research.



James Hutton Institute

The James Hutton Institute is an international research centre based in Scotland tackling some of the world’s most challenging problems including the impact of climate change and threats to food and water security.



Stockholm Resilience Centre

A joint initiative between Stockholm University, Stockholm Environment Institute and the Beijer International Institute of Ecological Economics at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. The SRC is primarily an interdisciplinary research organisation with six research themes. These operate as collaborative learning platforms wherein researchers with a variety of skills and backgrounds can discuss, compare and amalgamate findings and develop new research ideas. It also conducts a range of other activities including education (with undergraduate, masters and PhD programs) and policy and practice dialogues (between stakeholders including grass-roots levels, science, policy and decision makers).

But we also have other links here as a result of our working group world.


One is Conservation Bytes, Corey Bradshaw's newsletter which is dedicated to (inter alia) highlighting, discussing and critiquing the science of conservation, and on which he welcomes comment and discussion.


The Solutions Journal, brought to us by Bob Costanza and Ida Kubiszewski from the Ecosystem Services and Livelihood Opportunities Workshop.
