International Biological Programme (IBP), 1962-1977, n.d.


  • How to

The IBP, which ran from 1964 to 1974, was concerned with 'the biological basis of productivity and human welfare'. It provided the first occasion on which biologists from many countries were able to work together over a wide range of integrated studies. It was divided into a number of sections: Nicholson was made Convenor of the section 'Conservation of Terrestrial Communities (CT)'. The IBP/CT initially had its office at the Nature Conservancy from which Nicholson retired in 1966. He was involved in the IBP/CT until its conclusion.
