Research

The Andes Biodiversity and Ecosystem Research Group (ABERG) consists of over 40 senior scientists and over 20 Peruvian biologists and undergraduates. Together, ABERG has generated a comprehensive series of research projects on biodiversity distribution and ecosystem function in the tropical Andes. As of 2012, ABERG has published 45 scientific research articles in well-respected journals such as Ecology, Journal of Geophysical Resources, Journal of Biogeography, Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society: Biological Sciences, and many others. In December of 2010, members of ABERG contributed 6 papers to a special issue of Global Change Biology. ABERG scientists continue to study in the Andes and are continuing to submit research articles relating to the core research questions of the group.
