IBOY Projects

Map 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:

Core 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.
