  • Drivers of long term biodiversity change in a range of Scottish habitats — ALTER-Net: Europe's ecosystem research network

  • Ecosystem Services governance — ALTER-Net: Europe's ecosystem research network
    ecosystems The concept of ecosystem services has been introduced to integrate the protection of biodiversity and use of nature It is gaining political momentum in natural resource management Yet little research is available on the economic social and cultural values of ecosystem functions or on the integration of ecosystem services approaches to land use planning and management decisions its implications for legal systems and everyday practices of natural resource use ALTER Net has launched a process to identify and prioritize interdisciplinary research needs linked with ecosystem services The main aim is to support the formation of active research teams by bringing together researchers with different disciplines within and between ALTER Net partner institutes and stakeholders from policy making management livelihoods civil society and science donors This aspect of ALTER Net s work is led by staff at the Finnish Environment Institute SYKE who maintain a set of web pages about the work Find out more Visit SYKE s web pages for this project Read our policy brief on biodiversity and ecosystem services Learn about our related bioenergy pilot project Contact for more information Taru Peltola senior researcher Finnish Environment Institute SYKE firstname surname ymparisto fi taru peltola About ALTER Net

  • Bioenergy pilot project — ALTER-Net: Europe's ecosystem research network
    to make a synthesis of knowledge needs related to interlinkages between bioenergy and biodiversity This activity is a pilot for a framework to tackle with new unexpected challenges affecting biodiversity There is a great need for this kind of a framework for synthesizing rapidly research outputs for decision making The synthesis on the interlinkages between bioenergy and biodiversity will be distributed to both policy makers and researchers This ALTER Net activity is led by staff at the Finnish Environment Institute SYKE who maintain separate web pages with more information Related publication Some of ALTER Net s work in this area has been published in a book by Eeva Furman Riku Varjopuro and Taru Peltola Interdisciplinary research framework for identifying research needs Case bioenergy biodiversity interlinkages Lambert Academic Publishing A loss of biological diversity continues in spite of the existing and in some respects rather elaborate and heavy attempts at management and protection It has been argued that one of the reasons for the lack of success is the unmet and challenging knowledge needs Meeting the needs requires integration of various sciences and expertise since attempts to manage biodiversity gives rise also to many emerging complex and political questions Integration of the disciplines needs practices that are able to overcome practical institutional and cultural obstacles ALTER Net a European network for research on biological diversity under the 6th framework programme has aimed to undertake further interdisciplinary research that will feed into the addressing of societal needs This book presents a framework which creates possibilities for communication between research and decisionmaking By using the framework relevant topics for discussion are brought up emerging research needs are reacted to for elaboration into concrete research projects and finally research findings are conveyed to support decision making To achieve this requires organised and open collaboration
