Grupo de Biodiversidade dos Açores – GBA


Research centers or research group

The Azorean Biodiversity Group belongs to another Portuguese Science and Technology Foundation (FCT) ´s centre, the Centre For Ecology, Evolution and environmental change (cE3c), based in Lisbon.

The Azorean Biodiversity Group leads the Island Ecology & Environmental Risks (IEER) Thematic Line within the Ce3C’s. It investigates ecological and evolutionary processes on oceanic islands, contributing to the Centre’s vision and mission of understanding the response of biodiversity to global changes at multiple temporal and spatial scales. In addition, Azorean Biodiversity Group interdisciplinary expertise enables also research in environmental risk assessment and pest control, and provides support for decision-making and outreach, and effective conservation planning strategies in island ecosystems.

Researchers of the Azorean Biodiversity Group are engaged in complementary research on community ecology, molecular ecology and functional ecology and use advanced statistics and spatial modelling to ensure scientific progress in the field of ecology. In addition, researchers work in biomonitoring (development of biomarkers), ecological impact assessments, integrated pest management, health impact assessment, and risk management and communication to support policy-making.
