A Summer School dedicated to enhance skills on blue entrepreneurship, held just before the Lisbon United Nations Ocean Conference 2022.

This is a mostly practical course offering an overview on different community ecology and macroecological methods and software. These will include all steps of a research project, from the optimal sampling of communities to process inference from large-scale patterns of taxon, phylogenetic and functional diversity.

Logótipo da iniciativa e respetivas datas

As candidaturas para a 1.ª semana do Verão na ULisboa já estão abertas!

O evento visa reunir investigadores interessados na aplicação de isótopos estáveis em estudos ecológicos e na utilização de dados históricos de biodiversidade disponíveis em coleções museológicas.

The course aims at enabling the participants to use different methods to measure the impacts of pollutants on ecosystems. Basic knowledge will be provided through theoretical and practical lessons on how to select and use the most suitable metrics based on the analysis of multiple compartments of the ecosystems.

The program will consist of plenary lectures, oral, flash and poster communications, and a round table about Science Communication.

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. It also includes an in-depth review of the different types of data used to measure biodiversity and their problems and limitations.
