BIBS – Bridging in Biodiversity Science

BIBS is a project of the newly founded „Berlin-Brandenburg Institute of Advanced Biodiversity Research“ (BBIB). The overarching goal is to bridge disciplines, scales and systems in biodiversity research.

Work packages within BIBS are designed to study the entire chain of causes, mechanisms and consequences of rapid transitions across different ecosystems and spatio-temporal scales as one of the most pressing challenges in biodiversity research. The results will be collated in an overall synthesis, with conceptual publications intended for the scientific community, policy makers and the general public. A new methodological approach is to establish LandScape Laboratories (ScapeLabs) as a research platform for biodiversity research on different spatial scales.

In a consortium with tree universities and four non-university research organizations in Berlin and Brandenburg we focus on the following work packages:

1.    Establishment of ScapeLabs as a platform for field experiments

2.    Coupling of aquatic and terrestrial systems

3.    Rural-urban coupling

4.    Aboveground-belowground coupling

5.    Transition from natural to novel communities

The main topics of our working group are:
