The PLANFORBIO research team is one of the only truly integrated ecological research team to work in the Irish landscape. Traditionally specialists tend to work on in their own or cognate disciplines, thus opportunities for true integration rarely exist. However ecology doesn’t thrive in distinct disciplines, and when teams of researchers work together the outputs are richer. This research team brings together zoologists, botanists and foresters to conduct a joint study of forest ecology in Ireland.
