  • LTSER workshop, Helsinki, June 2011 — ALTER-Net: Europe's ecosystem research network
    ecosystems Perceived benefits include enabling planners to make more sustainable decisions helping inhabitants needs to be considered in policy making and providing researchers with scenarios for modelling Research ideas As a starting point groups were asked to consider how to operationalise in LTER Europe the outcomes from ALTER Net s work on knowledge needs in ecosystem services and governance Ideas proposed included Conduct a comparison of two different habitat types e g forest vs complex terrestrial Study certain ecosystem services such as biomass tourism timber food A range of other research ideas were also suggested including Quantifying relatively established indicators of ecosystem services over several LT S ER sites platforms Testing metrics of biological diversity for several charismatic and less charismatic species groups as indicators for cultural ecosystem services in different cultural settings How do we use and manage ecosystem services the influences of tradition policies etc 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 Organizers Long Term Biodiversity Ecosystem and Awareness Research Network ALTER Net Jiska van Dijk Finnish Environment Institute SYKE Eeva Furman Leena Kopperoinen Laila Liukka Institute of Social Ecology SEC Alpen Adria Universität Simron Jit Singh Helsinki University Centre for Environment HENVI Jari Niemelä InterAcademy Panel IAP Kinga Krauze Objectives The emerging interdisciplinary field of Long Term Socio Ecological Research abbreviated LTSER aims at observing analyzing understanding and modelling of changes in coupled socio ecological or human environment systems over longer i e at least decadal sometimes even centennial periods of time LTSER is focused on interactions between societies and ecosystems at various spatial and temporal scales By including long term monitoring historical research forecasting and scenario building empirical and conceptual research as well as participatory approaches LTSER aims at providing a knowledge base that helps to reorient socio economic trajectories towards more sustainable pathways The aim of this workshop is to bring together scholars and practitioners engaged with Long term Socio ecological Research to discuss the state of the art in terms of science and practice and to build stronger links between the two Keynote speakers Professor Christopher G Boone School of Sustainability and School of Human Evolution Social Change Arizona State University Phoenix USA Dr Bálint Czúcz Institute of Ecology and Botany of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences Vácrátót Hungary Dr Jan Dick Centre for Ecology Hydrology Edinburgh UK Professor Eeva Furman Environmental Policy Centre Finnish Environment Institute SYKE Helsinki

  • Long-Term Socio-Ecological Research: Studies in Society-Nature Interactions Across Spatial and Temporal Scales — ALTER-Net: Europe's ecosystem research network
    Net Almost a decade of research and collaborative effort within ALTER Net recently culminated in a 600 page Springer volume Long Term Socio Ecological Research Studies in Society Nature Interactions Across Spatial and Temporal Scales 2013 with contributions from 70 scholars from varying disciplines The authors in this volume make a case for LTSER s potential in providing insights knowledge and experience necessary for a sustainability transition This expertly edited selection of contributions from Europe and North America reviews the development of LTSER since its inception and assesses its current state which has evolved to recognize the value of formulating solutions to the host of ecological threats we face Through many case studies this book gives the reader a greater sense of where we are and what still needs to be done to engage in and make meaning from long term place based and cross disciplinary engagements with socio ecological systems Preview purchase online Publisher s website Filed under show as output output publication In this section Outputs Conferences Nature Urban Wellbeing Nature Based Solutions conference May 2015 Science underpinning the EU 2020 Biodiversity Strategy conference April 2013 Publications books chapters published reports etc Events meetings conferences etc Policy briefs

  • Interdisciplinary research framework for identifying research needs: Case: bioenergy-biodiversity interlinkages — ALTER-Net: Europe's ecosystem research network
    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 decision making 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 between research Further details of publication About ALTER Net s bioenergy case study Filed under show as output output publication publication In this section Outputs Conferences Nature Urban Wellbeing Nature Based Solutions

    ALTER Net Policy Brief on ecosystem services and biodiversity Research needs for the sustainable governance of ecosystem services and biodiversity Biodiversity and ecosystems provide a broad range of goods and services and form the basis for the subsistence and well being of humans and their societies During 2010 there was a strong policy shift towards the joint protection of biodiversity and ecosystem services Behind these policies lies the idea that biodiversity and ecosystem services can be jointly protected and managed in ways that contribute to sustainability human well being and poverty eradication However the knowledge needed to make this a reality is far from fully developed This briefing note summarises the main conclusions from two meetings organised by ALTER Net and lists what we feel are the main research priorities Filed under policy science policy interface policy brief In this section Outputs Conferences Nature Urban Wellbeing Nature Based Solutions conference May 2015 Science underpinning the EU 2020 Biodiversity Strategy conference April 2013 Publications books chapters published reports etc Events meetings conferences etc Policy briefs Progress reports Phase 1 reports Brochures flyers and other outputs Presentations Posters ALTER Net is supported by its partner institutes Alterra NL BC CAS CZ CNRS
