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

The LIB at the Langer Tag der StadtNatur Hamburg
We grab our nets, binoculars and rubber boots – on 17 June it’s the Langer Tag der StadtNatur Hamburg again. As a close partner of the event, the Museum of Nature Hamburg is of course also represented this year with exciting activities.
Face of the LIB: Thomas Wesener
What he likes best is discovering the hitherto unknown: As head of the Myriapoda section and curator of the associated collection at the Museum Koenig Bonn, Thomas Wesener is scientifically very familiar with millipedes.
At the Leibniz Institute for the Analysis of Biodiversity Change (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 Institute for the Analysis of Biodiversity Change (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 Institute for the Analysis of Biodiversity Change (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
