The British Ecological Society (BES) have launched a new project to set out the priorities for the future of ecological research in the UK. The project will identify the grand challenges for ecology, built on ideas and insight from across the diverse ecological community.
The project’s aim is to develop a unified community vision of the grand challenges for ecology and how they can best be met. It will also provide funders with a clear understanding of future research needs. The evidence gathered will be used to halt losses in nature and its biodiversity, mitigate the effects of climate change, and provide numerous benefits to wellbeing and prosperity.
A panel of 9 experts, including NbSI Director Professor Nathalie Seddon, will guide the project, oversee consultation with the community and create the final report outlining the research priorities for ecological research in the UK.
