  • Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) — ALTER-Net: Europe's ecosystem research network
    have always benefited from the use of biodiversity No other species on earth has impacted nature to such an extent by shaping and changing landscapes In doing so mankind has altered and partially irreversibly destroyed biodiversity and ecosystem functions Although the appreciation of biodiversity appears to have increased on many levels the rate of implementing appropriate mitigation is still too slow As a result the European target of stopping the loss of biodiversity by 2010 has clearly been missed The question now is what kind of world with how much biodiversity we want to have and need in the future More than 100 scientists from different disciplines of the natural and social sciences work at the UFZ in search of answers to this question In doing so we investigate fundamental relationships for example on the impacts of land consumption fragmented landscapes invasive species or climate change on plant and animal populations and the functions of ecosystems We are trying to find out whether a higher genetic diversity and greater species diversity really ensure that ecosystems are more stable and able to buffer changes We regard biodiversity also from an economics point of view calculate the costs and benefits of making certain decisions and provide systematic knowledge for a sustainable use of the scarce good of biodiversity TEEB The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity www teebweb org Questions about the risks and opportunities of bioenergy are closely related as renewable sources of energy are currently dramatically affecting agriculture and forestry water management the energy supply and societies Simulation models help to investigate different development perspectives in the form of scenarios to help make informed decisions about a sustainable bioenergy strategy Filed under Germany About ALTER Net ALTER Net flyer In this section About us What we do Partners Alterra Biology Centre

    LTER networks were represented The programme featured nine keynote presentations each followed by an invited critical commentaries Afternoons were devoted to group work and delegates were also treated to two additional refreshment talks each evening During group work delegates considered the i the benefits of socio ecological research and ii research ideas Within the ALTER Net and LTER Europe networks social scientists are still a minority Dialogue between disciplines is needed when research questions are discussed and this discussion is equally relevant at different levels from research platform to national network and LTER Europe ALTER Net s focus is on biodiversity Socio economic parameters are important factors affecting biodiversity and deserve greater attention within ALTER Net It is hoped to organise further socio ecological workshops when hopefully more socio economists and ecologists will be able to meet and exchange ideas Future LTSER workshops should be built on the foregoing ones and recognized gaps in knowledge should be considered as a basis for following workshops You can read the main outcomes of the workshop and access speakers presentations on the ALTER Net website Read more Filed under news ALTER Net Check out our sister website News Views for links to nature

  • 9th ALTER-Net summer school (2014) — ALTER-Net: Europe's ecosystem research network
    current issues in biodiversity and ecosystem services What people say The Summer School provided me a great opportunity for generating and exchanging ideas Monika Suškevičs student in 2014 I have a clearer idea of what I might want to do after my PhD A past student A modern day School of Aristotle where lecturers learn as much as students if not more M Sharman a unique opportunity for young European researchers to come together to focus on interdisciplinary issues and to develop personal networks K Baadsvik What can I expect The programme typically includes talks in the morning and an aperitif talk in the late afternoon before dinner All talks provide ample time for discussions As the speakers usually stay for some days in Peyresq informal discussions often go on till late at night Tutors guide small working groups in the afternoons to work on real world examples connected to the theme of the school Working groups summarise their results into a synthesis report aimed at policymakers A field trip illustrates land use change in Provence There are plenty of opportunities to relax in the beautiful village of Peyresq and its surroundings Read more about Peyresq and the Summer School experience Speakers Speakers at our 2014 Summer School included Leon Braat Martin Sharman Francine Hughes Bill Adams Jean Vancompernolle Mark Rounsevell Kurt Jax Francis Turkelboom Wolfgang Cramer Timo Lehesvirta Carsten Neßhover Anja Nygren Erik Gomez Mark Sutton Michael Mirtl Ariella Helfgott Mary Colwell Hector Uta Fritsch Taru Peltola Steve Redpath Allan Watt Topics addressed in previous Summer Schools include Biodiversity and ecosystems in Europe Ecosystem processes function services and benefits Resilience of social and natural systems Relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem services Valuation of biodiversity and ecosystem services Linking biodiversity research with policy and the public Participatory methods Conflict resolution
