Second Circular: Training school in Lisbon, Portugal | 15-26 May 2017 | Global and long-term effects of nitrogen on ecosystems

Global and long-term effects of nitrogen on ecosystems | Training school in Lisbon, Portugal | 15-26 May 2017

The Centre for Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Changes, Faculdade de Ciências, Universidade de Lisboa, is organizing a two-week international training school on the multiple effects of atmospheric nitrogen in ecosystems. The school will provide training in a holistic approach of key aspects related to N issues under the WAGES concept (nitrogen threats to Water, Air, Greenhouse gases balance, Ecosystems and Soils), with a long-term perspective. This edition will focus on Air quality, Ecosystems and Biodiversity.

The school is supported by NitroPortugal (a H2020-TWINN-2015 Coordination & support action) and by its partners ISA (Portugal), FCUL (Portugal), CEH (United Kingdom) and Aarhus University (Denmark). It's further supported by iLTER, JaLTER, LTERmontado and INMS.

The applications are now open. More information in the attached poster and online http://www.isa.ulisboa.pt/proj/nitroportugal/train.

No âmbito da actividade do Núcleo Regional de Combate à Desertificação do Alentejo (NRCD do Alentejo), o Departamento de Conservação da Natureza e Florestas do Alentejo, em conjunto com a Câmara Municipal de Barrancos e a Empresa de Desenvolvimento e Infra-estruturas do Alqueva, está a organizar um Encontro Sobre o Declínio do Montado que terá lugar no dia 9 de Maio de 2016, em Barrancos, na casa das Associações e na Herdade da Coitadinha.

Pretende-se, com o referido encontro, fazer uma abordagem às problemáticas do declínio dos montados, da degradação da terra e da desertificação nos contextos edafo-climático e socio-económico da região, com particular atenção aos factores de degradação do solo e do arvoredo (designadamente práticas e técnicas culturais desadequadas, agentes bióticos e abióticos e outras ameaças e constrangimentos) bem como com enfoque especial nas boas práticas de gestão em montados de azinho.

Para o efeito, a jornada contemplará uma sessão teórica e uma visita de campo. Assim, durante a manhã, far-se-á o enquadramento nos processos de degradação da terra / desertificação / declínio do montado, a apresentação do inventário da mortalidade da azinheira efectuado pela Universidade de Évora para o ICNF e a abordagem de causas e factores de declínio e mortalidade, das pragas e doenças no montado e das boas práticas na gestão de pastagens e conservação do solo.

A entrada é livre e as inscrições podem ser efectuadas através do e-mail: cmb.museu@cm-barrancos.pt .
