Collaborative Project - Comparative Biogeography and Conservation of Philippine Vertebrates

At the Kansas University Biodiversity Institute about 100 scientists and graduate students study the planet's species, ecosystems and past cultures.  The work they do is crucial and critical to understanding the diversity of life and for predicting the future: changes in populations, threatened species, the spread of disease and the influence of past species.
