This anniversary website explores BC3 through the years since its inception in 2008. It consists of a series of interviews with current and previous members, academic highlights and outreach activities. It sheds a light on our achievements, eventful years, successful projects and the people who have made, and who continue to make, BC3 what it is today. While we publish an activity report each year covering our scientific outcomes, this website instead hopes to celebrate our accomplishments and successes from both an academic and human perspective.

The Ministry of Science, Innovation and University has awarded a network of excellence to the Red Ecosoil, led by Jorge Curiel, Ikerbasque research professor at BC3. The project, “Biodiversity, trophic levels and ecological interactions in the soil system and its relationship to ecosystem functioning and services” is the only project given to an ecology group.
Most land use (change) decisions are still based on incomplete information about the real welfare effects (costs and benefits) because many so-called externalities (positive and negative) associated with the change in land use and management are neglected. This leads to loss and degradation of ecosystems and their services affecting human well-being. Worldwide more than 25% of the land surface is now more or less degraded (UNCCD Global Land Outlook, 2017), costing between 4 and 20 trillion US$/year in terms of damage, repair or replacement costs (Costanza et al., 2014).
The Multidisciplinary Expert Panel of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) has selected Ignacio Palomo to be Lead Author for Chapter 3 of the Methodological assessment regarding the diverse conceptualization of multiple values of nature and its benefitsThe assessment of diverse values of nature, which begins this year, will be conducted over the next three years and be presented to the Plenary of IPBES at its 9th session.
