IAPT Biodiversity Challenge 2022
The IAPT provides competitive grants for research on the taxonomy, systematics and nomenclature of plants, algae and fungi. Applications are particularly welcome from students and young investigators in developing countries, but the grants are open to applicants world-wide.
Small Collections Grants
From October 2019, IAPT will provide competitive grants for the improvement and/or maintenance of botanical collections (herbaria) of algae, fungi, and or plants.
The IAPT Biodiversity Challenge seeks to catalyze interdisciplinary research and promote small herbarium collections (< 100,000 specimens) that enhance our understanding of biodiversity. It also seeks to encourage revisionary systematics and innovative research based firmly on botanical collections. The IAPT Biodiversity Challenge welcomes proposals that focus on groups of organisms that are understudied, or for which taxonomic expertise is limited or vanishing and that include the exploration of poorly collected or threatened areas.
