he California Biodiversity Center (CBC) is an Organized Research Unit of the University of California Berkeley that fosters collaborations between the Berkeley Natural History Museums, Berkeley's Natural History Field Stations, and other partners studying changes in California's biological diversity, past, present, and future.

This site provides both information about the CBC as well as information and links of use to those interested in California's biological diversity.

Information about the CBC is provided by our mission statement, history and relationship to other organizations, our list of collaborating museums and field stations and by our lists of supported projects.

Resources provided by the CBC include a weekly seminar listing, websites for ecologists and systematists at UC Berkeley, and a comprehensive set of links to fieldstations, parks and preserves, agencies, research groups and organizations concerned with biodiversity in California.
