Research on the state and dynamics of biodiversity and habitats, scientific basis for conservation and restoration (BIODIVERSITY)
Objectives of the programme:
- Complex studies on the systematics and state of populations and their habitats of prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms (protists, fungi, plants, animals) to gain new fundamental knowledge about biodiversity and its supporting mechanisms in the conditions of global change and anthropogenic impact.
- Provision of the scientific basis for the State strategy documents and recommendations for the conservation, sustainable use and restoration of biological diversity.
- Completion, systematisation and improvement of national systematic collections, metadata and other biodiversity databases of international significance, adapting them to the needs of science and society, accumulation of interactive knowledge on various components of biodiversity, promoting public involvement in these activities.
