Centre for Biodiversity and Ecology Research

The Centre for Biodiversity and Ecology Research facilitates a coordinated, integrated approach to biodiversity and ecology research, consultancy, education and advocacy. CBER’s emphasis is on New Zealand’s indigenous biodiversity and natural ecosystems because the long history of evolutionary isolation has created highly distinctive and unique biota and ecosystems. CBER describes and assesses biodiversity, researches how organisms and ecosystems function, how genes, biota and ecosystems might be conserved or sustainably managed, and how to restore damaged or degraded ecosystems.

CBER hosts a Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment funded Outcome Based Investment (OBI) focusing on lake restoration. The lake restoration OBI focuses on harmful algal blooms and pest fish management. Our key research partners are Landcare Research, Geological and Nuclear Sciences, and Scion. Major end-users include the Department of Conservation, NZ Fish and Game, the Ministry for the Environment, Environment Bay of Plenty, and Environment Waikato.
