“Geography and major host evolutionary transitions shape the resource use of plant parasites” da autoria de Joaquín Calatayud, José Luis Hórreo, Jaime Madrigal-González, Alain Migeon, Miguel Á. Rodríguez, Sara Magalhães e Joaquín Horta salienta a necessidade de estudos mais globais em Ecologia.
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.
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:
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.
This course aims to give basic skills in R, but with some applications in the field of Evolutionary Ecology.
This course can have a recognition of 6 ECTs for FCUL PhD students enrolling in it, as part of their first doctoral year. For FCUL PhD students only requiring 5 ECTs recognized in their specific PhD programmes, the last 6 hours of the course are not mandatory and the certificate will be on 'Topics in R without fear’.
