The Institute of Biological & Environmental Sciences (IBES) undertakes both pure and applied research across the biological sciences, with a broad cross cutting theme of understanding the fundamental biological consequences of environmental change.
IBES researchers interact through a number of cross-cutting research units and alliances.
Aberdeen Biodiversity Centre promotes and supports the teaching of environmental and science topics, local biodiversity and cutting edge research from IBES.
A recent article led by Professor David Salt in the journal Science explores how genome duplication in the plant model Arabidopsis affects environmental tolerance and adaptation.

As part of our strategy to expand we are seeking collaborators and researchers at all levels whose activity complements our current research.
