Research Theme: Biological Classification

Here is an atmospheric-level view of all the Biological Classification
research and happenings at INSTAAR.

The study of living things, like plants, animals, diatoms, or microbes—to classify them in groups (of genus, species, etc.) and evaluate their diversity and presence or absence in different environments.
