Biogeography Research Group
The Biogeography Research Group (BRG) encompasses a broad range of biogeographical content focusing upon the study of plant and animal distributions and their geographical relationships with the environment. This includes aspects of ecology, biodiversity, landscape ecology, palaeoecology, environmental resource management, and includes human-environment relations.
BRG seeks to foster the study and development of biogeography through:
- The organisation of periodic meetings
- The provision of avenues of contact among biogeographers and between biogeographers and those in related fields
- The promotion of publications emanating from meetings organised by the Group
- Other appropriate means, particularly with respect to sources of funding for biogeographical research
For all enquiries, membership or otherwise, please contact RHED@rgs.org.
The Paddy Coker Research Fund
Paddy Coker was an internationally renowned, highly respected and enthusiastic biogeographer who contributed to the work of the BRG over many years. This fund honours his memory by supporting biogeographical research and monitoring activities through a series of grants that are available to postgraduate and full-time biogeographers.
The Paddy Coker Research Fund is not open for applications in 2017.
