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.
A study recently published in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B by Sean Jordan, a PhD student in CBER, and others show that non-neutral processes are required if we are to replicate the increase in species richness demonstrated by the Phanerozoic fossil record.
