Mission: The BOREA “Biology of Aquatic Organisms and Ecosystems” Lab aims to investigate biology and ecology of aquatic organisms and habitats in natural and impacted ecosystems. Using a transdisciplinary and integrative approach, the objective is to understand the origin, the role and the evolutionary mechanisms in aquatic biodiversity (from molecules to ecosystems), the interactions (i) between organisms and (ii) with their environment, as a response to global anthropogenic and climatic changes.
A large array of biological models is studied, including micro-organisms (bacteria and diatoms) and metazoa (such as cnidaria, annelids, molluscs, crustaceans, echinoderms, chondrichthyans, teleosts…) selected for their phylogenetic positions, their biological cycles and their ecological and economic relevancies.
The BOREA’s Lab covers a large spectrum of aquatic ecosystems: oceanic, coastal and freshwater, hydro-systems, temperate, tropical and arctic regions as well as “natural” and anthropised environments.
With a large range of scientific disciplines, BOREA is built on interdisciplinarity and promote the development of complementary and integrated studies on both the diversity and evolution of aquatic organisms and ecosystems: biochemistry, genomics, molecular and cellular biology, “evolution ecology and development”, endocrinology, ecophysiology, ecotoxicology systematics, phylogeny, phylogeography, functional ecology, modelling, community ecology, biogeography, macroecology.

Evolution of the institution
The following data gives a quick reading on the scientific performance in the last years. The research ranking refers to the volume, impact and quality of the institution's research output. The innovation ranking is calculated on the number of patent applications of the institution and the citations that its research output receives from patents. Finally, the societal ranking is based on the number of pages of the institution's website and the number of backlinks and mentions from social networks.
Compared to its context
The result of the evaluation of the institution can be compared to obtain a view of the country, the region to which it belongs and the institutions of the world, placing it in their respective positions.

Ranks by Subject area
We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas.
For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world.
If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal
These are the journals used by the institution's researchers to publish their work in the last year. The size of each circle represents the value of the SJR of the publication, and its spatial position represents its subject matter.
This visualizatión allows you to identify the knowledge areas where the institution has published, recognize the prestige of the scientific journals in which the institution knowledge has been published, and identify predominant scientific communities.
