Centre for Biodiversity and Environment Research (CBER)
CBER is an interdisciplinary centre within UCL’s Department of Genetics, Evolution and Environment.
Staff and students in the centre
undertake research at the interface between biodiversity and environmental
change, and are actively engaged in communicating new research and relating
findings to policy.
CBER offers training opportunities, including hosting postdoctoral fellows and supervising research students through the NERC London Doctoral Training Partnership and MRes in Biodiversity, Evolution and Conservation.
The often opportunistic nature of biological recording via citizen science initiatives can lead to data that are biased towards particular species, places or seasons. However, such biases may give valuable insight into volunteers’ recording behaviour.
