Conserving Nature: World-Class Research and Teaching


Research at DICE

Our innovative and cutting edge research develops the science that underpins conservation and tackles the more applied questions of how biodiversity can survive in this ever more crowded world.

DICE is committed to high-quality, practical, applied conservation research. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), the School of Anthropology and Conservation entered members of DICE into a collaborative submission with colleagues from Social Anthropology and Biological Anthropology. The high quality of DICE research was reflected in a 10th placed ranking for Research Power which recognises both the overall quality of the research and the number of researchers whose work was submitted for evaluation to the REF. The strengths and impact of DICE research was recognised by the REF panel.
