Biodiversity technologies

Biodiversity technologies research in Oxford is focussed on the use of well-established and newly emerging methodologies to record, value and map biodiversity from individual species through to landscapes. Specifically we aim to develop automated tools that enable an easy identification of species and the assessment of important regions for biodiversity conservation beyond the reserves. We are also developing web-based tools that can map dynamic features of any landscape in the world to inform on the important ecosystem properties and functions that it supports.
