O projeto MarCODE visa desenvolver uma ferramenta multidisciplinar para potenciar o rastreio e a rotulagem ecológica de espécies marinhas de interesse comercial, segundo comunicado de imprensa emitido pela Faculdade. O estudo iniciado este mês de julho deverá terminar daqui a três anos.
Speaker: Adriel Rodrigues (External collaborator PSE).
Objectives: The goal of this course is to provide to the participants with current and practical knowledge on urban ecology, including ecological and social aspects. It aims at providing an integrated approach on urban socio-ecological systems.
Objectives: Symbiosis is a key strategy for life on Earth. Nevertheless, although many research groups have long been committed to the study of symbiosis, its definition and functioning are not fully understood, and its ecological role and relevance are still underestimated.
Objectives: 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.
Objectives: 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. This includes the selection of functional traits and calculation of Functional Diversity Indexes. Examples of the application of this knowledge will be given regarding Ecological Indicators and Ecosystem Services.
The specific objectives are:
Cerca de 194 milhões de aves e 29 milhões de mamíferos podem ser atropelados por ano nas estradas europeias, de acordo com a estimativa de uma equipa internacional de investigadores liderada por Clara Grilo, investigadora do Centro de Estudos do Ambiente e do Mar (CESAM), polo da Ciências ULisboa, com sede na Universidade de Aveiro. Os resultados estão publicados na revista científica Frontiers in Ecology and Environment.
Objectives: Evolutionary theory provides a framework for understanding all living systems. Nevertheless, throughout the 20th century, with a few exceptions, evolutionary biologists have “avoided” using evolution to address problems related to our own species. EvoS is a program created by David Sloan Wilson at the University of Binghamton, and later adopted at other faculties that have joined into the EvoS international consortium.
Overview: 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. Samples from those matrices can provide a record for such changes across a given length of time and / or space. Also, ecological and physiological processes often reflect on stable isotope ratios, again setting a record in plant, animal or other living tissues.
