The International Associated Laboratory (LIA) “Biodiversity and Evolution” is a “laboratory without walls” created in 2014 and co-funded by CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) and FCT (Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia). It formalizes the cooperation between CIBIO-InBIO, University of Porto, and two research units from Montpellier, France – ISEM and CEFE (CNRS, University of Montpellier) – to develop collaborative research on Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology.

 

Detailed information about research axes, people, publications, academic training and joint projects can be found here.

 

 

HISTORY

 

The LIA was built upon several well-established collaborations among researchers who, for a decade before 2014, had conducted 18 research projects in close collaboration, produced 25 joint scientific publications, and had co-supervised several graduate students (3 PhD and 9 MSc).

 

 

RESEARCH

 

Collaborations of the LIA are centered on three main research axes:

 

                   Hybridisation, adaptation and speciation
                   Behavioural ecology
                   Biodiversity of deserts and arid regions

 

 

ORGANIZATION

 

The research teams and laboratories associated through the LIA Biodiversity and Evolution retain their separate autonomy, status, director and location. The LIA is coordinated by two co-principal investigators representing the French and Portuguese partners and is supervised by a scientific steering committee.
