The Research Center for Biodiversity Dynamics and Climate Change (CBioClima) articulates the consolidated experience of several groups and researchers to offer a transdisciplinary approach to the study of the relationships between biodiversity and climate change. The Center's research actions are organized into four working packs:


The Synthesis and big-data Working Pack aims to compile and synthesize information on biodiversity through the collection, selection and analysis of data on the impacts of climate change on biodiversity and Neotropical ecosystems.


The Natural History Working Pack: from genes to ecosystems aims to document the diversity, conservation and evolution of species, through new observation strategies that allow us to understand living organisms in their natural environment, using new technologies.


The Dimensions of Biodiversity Working Pack aims to document and evaluate the impacts of climate change on biodiversity at all ecological levels, especially those related to interactions between species and the reorganization of the food web (predatory web).


The Microbiome Working Pack for sustainable solutions, focused on the extensive analysis of the microbiomes of preserved forests, agroecosystems and degraded areas, combines agricultural productivity and biodiversity conservation, to ensure innovation, sustainability and strengthening of the productive sector. These actions aim to understand, preserve, restore and maximize ecosystem engineering provided by interactions between insects, plants and microorganisms.

These Working Packs develop a transdisciplinary approach , involving different specialties in the following areas of knowledge:

  • Phenology, evolutionary ecology, plant-animal interactions and climate change;

  • Systematic review, phylogeny, ecology and conservation with a focus on amphibians;

  • Biodiversity conservation, defaunation and seed dispersal in the Anthropocene;

  • Landscape ecology, conservation and ecosystem services;

  • Phylogenetics and evolution of plants;

  • Plant genetics and genomics;

  • Insects and genomics;

  • Innovation and sustainable solutions
