The main activities of the Institute are the assessment and cataloguing of living forms, the better understanding of the ecosystem processes and the origin, evolution and function of species and their classification, as well as the proper management and conservation of wildlife. The Institute also provides scientific advice on management to public administrations, private entities and environmental organizations and develop technical studies related to biodiversity. The Institute is composed of more than 70 specialists in different research areas, from microbes to vascular plants and mammals, including man.
