Soil ecology and ecosystem services

FCUL, Lisboa
cE3c

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 deliver goods and services for humans. It is striking that all these issues interact around one common resource - SOIL and its biodiversity. While scientists have long recognized soils as living and of central importance to food production, there is now wide appreciation that they are a foundation for human and ecosystem sustainability. The ecosystem services that flow from soils and their biodiversity include soil formation and renewal of its fertility, maintenance of the composition of the atmosphere through carbon storage and greenhouse gas flux, erosion prevention, the regulation of diseases, the decontamination and bio-remediation of toxic chemicals and habitat and food for a variety of wildlife. Additionally, living soil is a global receptacle of genetic diversity that is yet to be fully explored by humans. Despite this, soils are being degraded at high rates. Policy makers are seeking multiple solutions and need reliable scientific information on soils, their biodiversity and the many services they provide, as well as their resilience under the interacting environmental challenges. Thus, the need for improvement basic skills and their utilization on soils is a true challenge throughout Europe.

The advanced course on Soil ecology and ecosystem services (SoilEco) is conceived to give an integrated view of the living component of soils, and its key role on ecosystem functions and processes. Therefore, the course will assess the link between soil biological diversity and ecosystem functions. Relying on different specialists on soil the course is made up of two interrelated strands of work: theoretical and laboratory classes, tuned according to the attendants interests, aiming at the possibility to put in practice their own basic problem on soil ecosystem services.

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.

Estes seminários destinam-se à apresentação e discussão de estudos de caso em história de cultura material e coleções científicas, museus universitários e património científico em geral.

A organização da informação referente à produção científica e dos ficheiros que lhes estão associados implica, cada vez mais, a utilização de aplicações que permitam gerir a descrição e o arquivo dos documentos.

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

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

Aprender a produzir energia, descobrir como se forma a maior onda surfada em todo o mundo ou perceber como podemos falar com um robô, são apenas alguns dos desafios lançados pela Universidade de Lisboa (ULisboa) aos visitantes da exposição “Descobre a ULisboa”.

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 course starts with a short revision of multiple linear regression and generalised linear models, followed by an introduction to linear mixed effects models and generalised linear mixed effects models (GLMM) to analyse nested (also called hierarchical or clustered) data, e.g
