Biology is the scientific study of life. Biology examines the structure, function, growth, origin, evolution, and distribution of living things.[1].

Within Encora, two themes fall within the subject of biology:

  • Theme 6 - Effect of development and use on eco-morphology and coastal habitats.

Impact-assessment tools and environmental techniques for recovery of coastal habitats.

  • Theme 7 - Assessment of biodiversity change.

Testing and improving an ecological valuation protocol for the coastal and marine environment, including transitional waters.
