Das Deutsche Zentrum für integrative Biodiversitätsforschung (iDiv) ist in Mitteldeutschland eine Drehscheibe der internationalen Biodiversitätsforschung. Forschungsziel und Aufgabe ist die Förderung theoriebasierter Synthese und datenorientierter Theoriebildung.
Das Synthesezentrum sDiv ist inhaltlich und physisch in iDiv integriert. Das Synthesezentrum dient der Förderung von Theorie und Synthese in den aufstrebenden Biodiversitätswissen-schaften.
Die Graduiertenschule yDiv wurde ins Leben gerufen, um eine neue Generation interdisziplinär arbeitender Biodiversitätswissenschaftler auszubilden.
