of IBOY Core and Satellite Projects around the world
At the core of the IBOY is
a diverse portfolio of international research, informatics, and education
and outreach projects, addressing the questions:
- What biodiversity do we
have and where is it?
- How is biodiversity changing?
- What goods and services
does biodiversity provide?
- How can we conserve biodiversity?
IBOY does not fund these projects,
but will highlight them, provide opportunities for networking and cross-collaboration,
and explain their significance to a broad audience.
Projects can participate in
the IBOY at three levels:
Network Projects - are international, with a peak of activity
and products during 2001-2002. IBOY Core Projects will be the focus
of the IBOY's publicity and synergistic activities.
