We are dedicated to researching biodiversity and its changes, the results of which are disseminated to the wider society in an educational manner. In order to better understand the current mass extinction of flora and fauna, researchers are looking for connections and causes of – often – man-made changes. The goal is to develop solutions for the preservation of ecosystems and species in order to maintain the basis of current life.learn more

At the Leibniz-Institut zur Analyse des Biodiversitätswandels (LIB), scientists document the diversity of species and study how they change with and in their living environment. In doing so, they reconstruct the development of fauna and investigate the nature and extent of anthropogenic influence.learn more
An important basis for research at the Leibniz-Institut zur Analyse des Biodiversitätswandels (LIB) are the scientific collections. The archive of living organisms, fossils and minerals provides our researchers with information about past and present times. The objects and data reflect the changes of species as well as their environment and allow predictions for further development.learn more
The Leibniz-Institut zur Analyse des Biodiversitätswandels (LIB) offers a wide range of activities: The exhibitions provide the opportunity to engage with current and also explosive topics of the environment and natural history against the background of current research findings. With our educational and event formats, we actively involve participants in all their diversity in our programs. They expand their knowledge of species and learn more about the use and destruction of habitats.learn more
