The mission of the EECO Group is to produce and use scientific knowledge in evolutionary ecology and population biology to contribute to decision making regarding the conservation of plant species. The Group implements research projects and monitors threatened species, carries out extinction risk assessments (red lists) of species and diagnoses to identify important areas for plant conservation, and designs and deploys conservation plans for species. This entire work contributes to national and international strategies for biodiversity conservation.
