"An important part of the future
success of BRCC revolves around its
ability to expand research opportunities and binational collaborations
with Mexican scientists..."

Biodiversity Research Center of the Californias (BRCC) scientists will assist in the strategic planning process by assessing the current condition of research and collections activities and the perceived strengths and weaknesses of the research division. They will also provide important input to help determine the type of research that the division will be conducting over the next decade.

An important part of the future success of BRCC revolves around its ability to expand research opportunities and binational collaborations with Mexican scientists and to participate in binational and multidisciplinary expeditions in the Peninsular California region. BRCC scientist's input will be critical in developing this part of the strategic plan.

Critical questions include what will be the mix of basic taxonomic, phylogenetic, evolutionary biological, ecological, and conservation research/work. Future staffing priorities will necessarily flow from the decisions reached. BRCC scientists will also need to be deeply involved in leading discussions about division funding and the need for a balance between endowment, grant, contract, and general Museum funding sources for science.
