Abstract:
The Operational Directorate Natural Environment (OD Nature) resulted from the merger of the former Management Unit of the North Sea Mathematical Models and the Scheldt Estuary (MUMM) with the Fresh Water Biology and Biological Evaluation departments, the Belgian Biodiversity Platform and the National Focal Point concerning the Convention on Biological Diversity.

OD Nature studies both biotic and abiotic components of the natural environment as well as the interactions of underlying systems. For the marine environment, the research follows a system-oriented approach, often underpinned by modelling studies and with an important physical component. This research extends far beyond the Belgian boundaries.

The Directorate is competent to perform research in certain domains. The group ensures a permanent monitoring programme of the North Sea and reports to the official services. It also coordinates a programme to increase the knowledge about biodiversity in developing countries. It takes up an official role in several national bodies and represents or supports the State in several bodies and instruments. In certain cases, it concerns legally-bounded commitments. OD Nature also manages several databases (Belgian Marine Datacenter, marine mammals, bird ringing, archiving of satellite images, etc.) which are available for scientists as well as for the broader public.

Specifically for the marine environment, OD Nature is working on:
- Modelling: studying the ecosystems of the North Sea using mathematical modelling techniques with a view to understand how they function and to provide certain forecasting capacities;
- Monitoring: collecting marine information required to evaluate the state of the marine environment and to validate and adapt mathematical models;
- Management: via the scientific service MUMM, OD Nature represents Belgium in diverse intergovernmental conventions dealing with the protection of the marine environment. Furthermore, MUMM elaborates the Belgian position on certain matters which fall under the authority of the minister responsible for for the marine environmental policy.

OD Nature also coordinates and manages the RV Belgica and is responsible for the Belgian North Sea Aerial Survey program tracing marine pollution. The Directorate is also active in many national and international marine research projects such as MyOcean (Ocean monitoring and forecasting), EMODNET (European Marine Observation and Data Network) and SEAS-ERA.

The Freshwater Biology division studies (1) the ecological strategies of freshwater organisms, (2) soil organisms in old lakes, (3) the taxonomy, phylogeny and ecology of certain taxa such as Ostracoda, Oligochaeta, Chironomidae and Rotifera and (4) genetic aspects in relation to the maintenance of biodiversity (for instance non-native amphibians).

Also, some research carried out by the Freshwater Biology division overlaps with marine topics such as:
- Molecular phylogeny and phylogeography of Antarctic abyssal amphipods (Crustacea, Amphipoda, Gammaridea) and the relationship with abyssal species from oceans across the world;
- The biodiversity of freshwater and marine ecosystems.

This division collaborates with several foreign institutes and participates in research projects including the AntaBIF project, aimed to build an Antarctic Biodiversity Information Facility. This will result in the Belgian federal contribution to LifeWatch.
