ALGEBRA WORKSHOP 2014 – 34 YEARS OF CAUL

Instituto para a Investigação Interdisciplinar da UL

Summary

The aim of this workshop is to celebrate the 34 years of CAUL, providing an opportunity for both long time and more recent colleagues to share their work --- as well as their experience as CAUL members and collaborators. It will take place at the Instituto para a Investigação Interdisciplinar of the University of Lisbon, a place that, we trust, carries fond memories. Faithful to CAUL's spirit, we also welcome anyone with an interest in Algebra who wishes to take part in this commemoration.

The aim of this mini-symposium is to promote interactions among students, teachers and researchers.

Under the general framework of Global Change Ecology, the goal of this course is to provide the participants with the most recent and practical knowledge on the use of Functional Diversity.

During recent decades we have witnessed a great development of bioinformatics that has led to the accumulation of a huge amount of biological information.

The objective of this course is to introduce participants to the details of communication and writing scientific publications. The main emphasis is on the most common form, the “primary scientific paper”, but other forms will be covered.

Phylogenetics is one of the scientific areas of Biology that has grown fast and evolved in methodological terms in the last years.

Lack of fertile land to feed the exponentially growing population, insufficient water availability and quality, changes in the flow of nutrients through the bio-geo-cycles (especially N and P) and climate and land use changes are impacting ecosystems and their capacity to deliv

On completion of the course, the students shall have acquired the following knowledge and understanding:

The continuous urban development associated with the growth of the world population has become one of the most important challenges of the present time. Today, cities accommodate more than 54% of the world's population, a proportion that is expected to increase to 70% by 2050.

The conference aims to create a bridge between quarry restoration projects around the world.

Nature-based approach to Design solutions for a more resilient future aims to support societies address a variety of environmental, social and economic challenges in sustainable ways. This approach relies on actions that are inspired by, supported by or copied from Nature.

Currently, climate changes or alterations are known to be reflected on the stable isotope ratios of Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Carbon, Oxygen and Sulphur present in atmospheric gas forms, fresh or ocean water, as well as in plants and animals and organic matter in the soil.

Phylogeography is one of the recent scientific areas emergent from the dissemination of highthrouput technologies of sequencing starting in the 90’s of the XXth century, with the consequent development of intra-specific genetic variance analysis and its geographic distribution.

This is a mostly practical course offering an overview on different community ecology and macroecological methods and software.

This course offers an overview of the different ways to measure biodiversity, and provides tips for the stratification of primary biodiversity data and the construction of variables that describe its various facets.

The goal of this short course is to introduce the students to the main climate change research concepts and prepare them to use available information on scenarios, impacts and adaptation.

Specific goals include:

The Lichens course is a 4 days lectures and lab classes + one day field excursion.

The European Conferences on Mathematical and Theoretical Biology (ECMTB) are the major scientific events in this field in Europe and one of the major events worldwide, attracting the participation not only of the European researchers, but also of researchers from all over the w
