The Biodiversity on a Changing Planet (BoCP) program builds on and expands the former Dimensions of Biodiversity program. It also incorporates elements of the Bridging Ecology and Evolution (BEE) track which had been in the Division of Environmental Biology.

The program supports both US-only collaborative proposals and proposals with international partnerships with the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) of Brazil, and the National Research Foundation (NRF) of South Africa. International collaborative proposals are to be submitted jointly, with the US PIs submitting to NSF and the collaborating Chinese, Brazilian, or South African PIs submitting to their appropriate national funding agencies. 

Successful projects will address persistent theoretical, methodological, infrastructure, and data gaps regarding functional biodiversity science within the context of a changing planet. This funding opportunity is designed to foster interdisciplinary collaboration. Collaborative teams of scientists including, for example, evolutionary biologists, ecologists, paleontologists, organismal biologists, systematists, biogeographers, geobiologists, critical zone scientists, modelers and/or climatologists are considered essential to address functional biodiversity in dynamic systems.
