CE3C

As florestas das zonas semiáridas estão sob ameaça. As alterações climáticas e as mudanças de uso do solo têm levado ao seu declínio e à falta de regeneração natural.

Este vídeo mostra como as características locais influenciam decisivamente o crescimento da floresta a longo prazo. Utilizando este conhecimento podemos planear melhor a nossa floresta e regenerar a floresta no futuro.

Seminário cE3c I (ano letivo 2020/2021)

O cE3c - Centro de Ecologia, Evolução e Alterações Ambientais está mais uma vez a organizar o Seminário cE3c I, que irá decorrer no 1.º semestre do ano letivo 2020/2021 na Faculdade de Ciências. O seminário é pensado sobretudo para estudantes que se encontram no primeiro ano dos Programas Doutorais em Biologia (FCUL) ou Biodiversidade, Genética e Evolução (BIODIV UL), correspondendo a 6 ECTS* em cada semestre. Podem portanto constituir parte do currículo do 1.º ano dos seus programas de doutoramento.

Bioinformatics analysis of biological sequences - from sequence to structure

Objectives: Acquire knowledge regarding bioinformatic tools available to predict nucleic acid (RNA, DNA or Nucleic Acids Mimics) and protein three-dimensional structure, as well as autonomy and critical thinking in the use of those tools. Develop skills on the use of bioinformatics software freely available on the Internet and to interpret the biological meaning of the results.

Speaking “nature”: Methods for measuring the impact of environmental pollution on ecosystems

Objectives: 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.

Island Biogeography

Objectives: This course introduces the field of island biogeography, a discipline that has long influenced other research areas such as macroecology, community ecology, evolution and conservation biology. This course covers the main aspects of island biogeography, and on completion of the course the students shall have acquired knowledge and understanding on:
