CESAB – Centre for the Synthesis and Analysis of Biodiversity – is a key program of the FRB (Foundation for Research on Biodiversity) and is an original, innovative and internationally recognized tool that offers researchers a place and time to synthesize and analyze already existing data and information in the field of biodiversity research.
With the major crisis facing biodiversity, the need to synthesize scientific data in ecology has never been greater. An unprecedented work has been initiated by international experts within IPBES to assess the current status of biodiversity and its contribution to human societies. These reports are based on studies already published in scientific journals and databases already compiled. When pooled, these existing data can be used to address new issues, significantly advance knowledge and provide recommendations for decision-makers.
Since it was created in 2010, CESAB has been collecting and pooling existing data sets in the field of biodiversity and developing complex statistical methods to assess the state of biodiversity and model its future.
Located in Montpellier, it is at the heart of one of the most dynamic scientific communities in the world in ecology (the University of Montpellier was ranked first in the world in the Shanghai ranking in ecology in 2018 and 2019). CESAB offers an ideal working environment for scientific production.
CESAB publishes a newsletter every six months, presenting CESAB’s news and actions, as well as news from the different working groups, past and present.
