Biology Centre Launched

Wednesday, 18 October, 2000

The Centre of Evolutionary Biology and Biodiversity was launched at Adelaide University. The Centre represents a joint research initiative between Adelaide University, the South Australian Museum and the Plant Biodiversity Centre's Department of Environment and Heritage.

The Centre will be a national and international centre for research and teaching in evolutionary biology and biodiversity studies, with an emphasis on the fauna and flora of Australia.

The Centre will focus on a range of scientific questions, such as 'how are species formed?', 'how many species of plants and animals really exist?' and how answers to these questions relate to the conservation and management of biodiversity.

The formation of the Centre will help to provide secure external funding and infrastructure through collaboration among its member, and with national and international colleagues. It will also attract quality post-graduate students and visitors from interstate and abroad.
