  • ALTER-Net partners collaborate to study tropical forest biodiversity's role in responding to climate change — ALTER-Net: Europe's ecosystem research network
    at the role of biodiversity in climate change mitigation Tropical forests provide us with foods fibres and medicines they filter water and control its flow They also soak up carbon dioxide from the air mitigating climate change The UN s REDD programme Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation seeks to encourage sustainable forest management thus maintaining ecosystem services increasing resilience to climate change and conserving forest carbon stocks To optimise carbon and non carbon ecosystem services from tropical forests in the face of global change we must improve our understanding of the relationships between biodiversity and the socio ecological processes through which we respond and adapt to change ROBIN which is funded by the EU s FP7 programme is running for four years and aims to provide information for policy together with resource use options under scenarios of socio economic and climate change ROBIN is led by ALTER Net s CEH and also involves Alterra ISE and PIK They are working with two other European partners and six organisations in Central and South America A series of short articles explain some of the approaches being taken in the project and early results They cover the following topics Scenarios and policy options in ROBIN Modelling biodiversity and land management in land surface models Stakeholder engagement in climate change mitigation Each article is available in English Portuguese and Spanish To stay up to date with ROBIN you can subscribe to the project s e newsletter Related content Research by ALTER Net partners featured in magazine A Special issue on REDD published Equihua Sier et al The ROBIN project Filed under science policy interface collaboration ALTER Net involvement research Check out our sister website News Views for links to nature and biodiversity news stories polls and featured topics Nature in the news

  • Cairngorms National Park becomes the first UK LTSER Platform — ALTER-Net: Europe's ecosystem research network
    LTSER platforms is to encourage use of the data and infrastructure provided by long term ecological research LTER sites and to marry this knowledge with social and economic research in a place based approach to facilitate sustainable management of an area There are now over 30 LTSER platforms across Europe Their development is promoted and managed by the LTER Europe network Over 40 people attended the Aviemore meeting including representatives of local academic and research organisations volunteer groups government agencies and NGOs Jan Dick Centre for Ecology Hydrology is the research coordinator for the the ECN Cairngorms site in the National Park She spoke at the event explaining about ECN and describing her involvement in the EU funded OpenNESS Project in which the Cairngorms National Park is a case study OpenNESS aims to help make it easier to apply the concepts of Natural Capital NC and Ecosystem Services ES to practical land water and urban management and decision making Jan Dick speaking at the Cairngorm LTSER launch The Allt a Mharcaidh catchment was highlighted as an example of the progression in scientific thinking that has led to the creation of LTSER platforms Early scientific studies at the site focused on ecological monitoring but now some 15 years later research in the catchment takes a more holistic approach routinely collecting data relevant to the social sciences The first assessment of ecosystem services at UK ECN terrestrial sites led by Dr Dick was published in 2011 A follow up study is now underway Further information ECN Cairngorms ECN Allt a Mharcaidh co located with ECN Cairngorms Cairngorms National Park Dick J et al 2011 A comparison of ecosystem services delivered by 11 long term monitoring sites in the UK environmental change network Environmetrics 22 5 639 648 About LTSER platforms OPENNESS project

  • ALTER-Net is at LTER-Europe's annual conference — ALTER-Net: Europe's ecosystem research network
    place in Rome this week ALTER Net formally supports LTER Europe and several ALTER Net partner institutes are closely involved in their national LTER networks and the EnvEurope project Chair of the ALTER Net Council Eeva Furman will give a presentation on LTER Europe as infrastructure for biodiversity and ecosystem services research in ALTER Net LTER Europe itself is chaired by Michael Mirtl of ALTER Net partner UBA EAA In building a site network for biodiversity and ecosystem research since 2004 LTER Europe has identified a set of requirements in the field of cross site workflows network design tools for information management harmonization and standardization The LIFE project EnvEurope has successfully tackled these requirements over the past 4 years 2010 2013 The products of EnvEurope and the approaching Horizon 2020 are the entry point for the next phase in designing the European research infrastructure landscape in the field of biodiversity and ecosystem research A key challenge for LTER Europe with its highly instrumented observational sites and socio ecological research platforms is how best to cooperate and integrate with both large scale monitoring schemes including remote sensing and experimental approaches The interaction with key stakeholders such as ALTER Net at the joint conference in Rome will form a milestone on this way This meeting is an opportunity for infrastructure managers and scientific users interested in LTER Europe to meet and hear about the science that LTER Europe helps deliver and to exchange ideas strengthen interactions identify development priorities and explore possible collaborative projects The programme for the conference is available below Further information ALTER Net and LTER Europe Related content Final programme joint LTER Europe EnvEurope conference Check out our sister website News Views for links to nature and biodiversity news stories polls and featured topics Nature in the news Sharing
