The website of the UK Biodiversity Science Committee for UK biodiversity scientists

Welcome to UK Biodiversity Science

The UK Biodiversity Science Committee (UK BSC) was established in summer 2012 to represent the UK biodiversity science community under the DIVERSITAS banner and to serve as a constituted advisory committee for The Royal Society Global Environmental Research Committee (GERC).  Individual members will serve 3 year terms, and new members will be selected through an application and election process to maintain the diversity of the Committee.

The Committee faces some challenging tasks in the years ahead, and we are only finding our feet and beginning to get to work. Input from the community is crucial to the success of the endeavour to make us more than the sum of our parts – so please get in touch through the discussion pages on the website, follow us on Twitter (@BiodivSci) or just e-mail!
