 Project objective

Environmental degradation due to land-use, over-exploitation and climate change rapidly erodes Europe’s unique biodiversity, resulting in irreversible loss of valuable resources both for ecosystem functions and for human well-being. However, despite the numerous monitoring and conservation efforts, our ability to predict and mitigate the extinction risk of wild populations remains limited. Assessing the temporal variation in genetic diversity and its environmental drivers represents a powerful approach to address this challenge, but incorporating it into conservation planning has been hindered by i) lack of affordable technology, ii) lack of interdisciplinarity, and iii) disconnection between fundamental research and applied conservation. BEEP will address these gaps by combining modern sequencing technologies for quantifying species temporal genomic erosion, with satellite observations of the earth for assessing the corresponding environmental change. By bridging diverse technological fields and scientific principles, BEEP will provide an applied predictive framework for species extinction risk in response to human pressure that can be directly utilised by major environmental organisations (IUCN, EEA, IPBES). I will showcase the power and importance of this approach using the European endemic and highly threatened mountain tea species (Ironwort), that are of significant conservation interest due to their traditional and emerging medicinal properties. I will achieve BEEP's objectives at SBiK-F (Senckenberg Biodiversity and Climate Research Centre), a world-class centre in interdisciplinary biodiversity research, ranging from earth observations from space to species evolutionary genomics.The proposed project will provide new research and training opportunities that will bring me in a very competitive position in order to successfully establish myself as a leading and interdisciplinary European researcher in the fields of biodiversity research and conservation.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "BEEP" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
