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.
A recent article by Professor Pete Smith in the journal Nature explores the mechanisms and impacts of climate extremes on the terrestrial carbon cycle, and proposes a pathway to improve understanding of present and future impacts of climate extremes on the terrestrial carbon budget.
IBES researchers win award for best review paper.
As part of our strategy to expand we are seeking collaborators and researchers at all levels whose activity complements our current research.
