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.
As part of her MRes project with CBER, Jennifer Choyce spent two months in Bermuda looking into the impacts of climate change on calcifying species associated with Sargassum seaweed. Here, she talks about her experience on the project.

Thousands of species have been moved by people
to areas where they do not naturally occur. These alien species can have
negative impacts on the environments into which they are introduced. Given the

identify which are the worst in order to prioritise our remedial or
preventative actions? One method that shows a lot of promise is the Environmental Impact Classification for Alien
