Centre for Biocultural Diversity

"Formally established in 2007, the Centre's overall mission is to undertake research, education and community outreach on the links between cultural and biological diversity and on how human society has shaped and is shaped by the landscape and biosphere.

"The Centre draws on staff and students from Kent's Anthropology Department and the Durrell Institute of Conservation and Ecology. Both Anthropology and DICE were 5 rated in the 2001 RAE, and judged Excellent in the most recent Teaching Quality Assessment.

"CBCD has collaborative links with a number of institutions for research, education and community outreach purposes, including the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, the Eden Project, the Henry Doubleday Research Association and the Global Diversity Foundation.

"Current research projects include 'Developing local global feedback for policy advocacy on biocultural diversity', funded by the Christensen Fund, to Dario Novellino, Roy Ellen and Miguel Alexiades, and the British Homegardens Project, funded by the Leverhulme Trust to Roy Ellen and Simon Platten."
