2010-2011 Joint call
BiodivERsA call for proposals on "biodiversity and ecosystem services and their valuation"
The European partners in the BiodivERsA network have joined efforts to organize and fund a Pan-European call for international research projects on biodiversity and ecosystem services and their valuation.
The call addressed the following themes, across all ecosystems and organisms:
- a) Relationships between biodiversity and ecosystem services;
- b) Valuation of biodiversity and ecosystem services (monetary and non monetary), and better incorporation of biodiversity and ecosystem services into society and policy.
