The Oxford Networks for the Environment (ONE) mobilise the University’s expertise in science, technology, business and society in relation to the environment. They enable Oxford to find solutions to the complex, converging challenges of energy, water, food security, climate change, and threats to biodiversity.

The Oxford Biodiversity Network is a network of researchers and practitioners in and around the University working on biodiversity. The network includes academics, senior researchers, students, and staff spanning multiple departments most notably Zoology, Plant Sciences, Earth Sciences, and Geography, the Gardens, Libraries, and Museums, and Wytham Woods Research Facility. It extends over more than 20 Departments and Institutes, supporting over 200 members. The Biodiversity Network seeks to highlight and integrate the range of biodiversity-related research and activities going on in Oxford, and to work closely with other Oxford Networks for the Environment (ONE) to contribute to the sustainability of the natural world.
