Addressing the challenges of climate change and environmental impacts
Environment and Biodiversity
By making the most of our proximity to nature, our researchers are making a difference close to home and far afield.
The University of Aberdeen is an internationally recognised centre of excellence for research, addressing the global challenges of climate change and environmental impacts. Our research crosses the broad themes of understanding the fundamental biological and physical consequences of environmental changes, from the gene to global levels and from the Arctic to Antarctic.
Our research has led to the development of Decision Support Frameworks and participatory mapping methods to shape, direct and inform national and regional environmental planning methodologies, including ensuring successful stakeholder engagement and consensus (e.g. within the marine environment)."
