Bio3: Biodiversity and Ecology

The scope of Expert panel Bio3 includes fundamental biological research, which focuses by content and/or methodology on the organism, the biological community and the ecosystem. The end goal of the research is the fundamental knowledge of biological processes without immediate application goals (such as medical, biomedical, agricultural, biotechnological).

More specific:

  • Research on the evolution, identification and classification of organisms.
  • Research on the dynamics and the functioning of individuals, populations and communities in the environment.
  • Research on the dynamics and the functioning of (natural) ecosystems.
  • Examples of disciplines (not exhaustive): taxonomy, phylogenetics, evolutionary biology, biogeography, palaeontology, ethology and behavioural ecology, functional morphology in an ecological/evolutionary context, auto-ecology, population biology and population genetics, evolutionary ecology, macro-ecology, community ecology, ecosystem ecology, biogeochemistry, landscape ecology, global ecology, palaeo-ecology, ecotoxicology in an ecological/evolutionary context, molecular phylogenetics…
