The UF Biodiversity Initiative will explore the world’s past and present biodiversity at all levels of organization, from molecules to ecosystems, and the relationship of biodiversity to climate change and to healthy and sustainable natural and human environments. Scientists and students will study and evaluate data from all relevant sources on topics of interest and distribute the newly synthesized information to individuals and organizations seeking validated biodiversity information.
