In 2017, the main achievements of the 23 integrated members with Ph.D. of ABG-cE3c included 158 publications, 57 of which in International Indexed Journals with Impact Factor. The mean Impact Factor in 2017 in SCI Journals was 2.83 (max = 11.615; Biological Reviews); 28 publications are included in the first quartile, with a mean Impact Factor of 4.14 (49% of the SCI publications). Our 24 external collaborators published an additional 12 SCI publications with our affiliation.

Thirty-nine projects run in 2017, 10 of which were coordinated by integrated members (see detailed list in 6.1.): 18 received international funding, four were funded by National funds from FCT, eight by regional funds from DRCT and nine were funded by other Agencies. These 39 projects (some of them finishing in 2017) brought about 364,520.00 Euros to the research group members in 2017. In addition, in 2017 we secured a total of 280,720.00 Euros with Ph.D. Post Doc and other types of grants.  

The Azorean Biodiversity Group is subdivided in two main groups with specific objectives, the “Island Biodiversity, Biogeography & Conservation - IBBC” and the “Island Environmental Risks & Society - IERS”.
