Projects contributing to ABOL can be found here
The ABOL initiative is dedicated to the recording and evaluation of the diversity of Austrian animals, plants and fungi (see About us). The overall project is executed by ABOL projects based on taxonomic groups (see ABOL cluster). These clusters integrate experts who participate in planning and realization of respective projects.
ABOL aims to establish trans-institutional and transnational cooperations. Bringing together expertise from various sources and benefitting from synergies increases the quality of the output.
Currently, two large-scale projects contribute to ABOL. The HRSM project, funded by the BMBWF, is a joint project among five Austrian universities (-> read more). The BRIDGE-1 project (FFG) BIO-PLANBAR is conducted by the University of Graz (Lead), the Universalmuseum Joanneum and the Ökoteam (-> read more).
Dear ABOL community
One advantage of DNA barcoding is the strong international networking of the initiative.
As part of the HRSM project, the team of Irmgard Krisai-Greilhuber at the University of Vienna has created DNA barcodes of a fungus that was on the way of being described.
Dear ABOL community,
First of all a thank you to all participants of our ABOL meeting. This year we decided for the first time for accompanying workshops – thank you for the stimulating discussions, we hope to be able to offer such events again soon. A special thanks to all presenters for the thrilling contributions. This allowed us to get a good overview of what is already running and what is possible with DNA barcoding.
Thanks to all for the many, positive feedback. We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and hope for fruitful cooperation next year.
Dear ABOL community and biodiversity enthusiasts, the program of this years´ABOL meeting is now complete and can be downloaded here: program-ABOL-meeting2018.
