Project description Global change is driving biodiversity loss at unprecedented rates constituting a global threat to human welfare and ecological stability. Consequences of such changes (e.g., warming, drought, salinization) are particularly pervasive in aquatic ecosystems (e.g., ponds, lakes, rivers). Ecosystem services (i.e., benefits provided to people, both directly and indirectly) by
Title of the project NaturaConnect - Building a resilient ecological network of conserved areas across Europe for nature and people Principal Investigador for this contract Prof. Miguel B. Araújo Team members Dr. Diogo Alagador, Dr. Frederico Mestre, Dr. Babak Naimi, Ms Dora Neto, Dr. Alejandro Rozenfeld Background Funded by the European Union
Project description Biodiversity is declining at unprecedented rates, with far-reaching consequences for the functioning of ecosystems and human well-being. The loss of any species can have profound consequences given that all species are entangled in complex networks of interactions with other species. Thus, any species loss can promote a deep reorganisation of the communities and ecosystems.
We are offering a research project listed under La Caixa prestigious PhD studentships. The studentships are competitive and only the best students will be selected. Our project is termed "Modelling the future of species interactions under climate change extremes". For this project, we are looking for a bright and committed candidate with ability to work in a collaborative international
We are looking for a lab & field technician to support experiments in the project AQUACOSM-PLUS, more specifically within the Iberian Ponds programme. Description of the job, salary and application process here.
Two calls are now open to enable access to the Iberian Ponds data, under EC AQUACOSM-PLUS project, for collaboration on the following topics: Spatial and temporal variation in pond communities across a temperature gradient Climate change effects on Iberian aquatic food webs To apply follow the links
AQUACOSM-plus offers funding for mesocosm experiments through a unique collaborative international project, representing a full cross section of aquatic ecosystems. It is a good opportunity to visit and work in our Iberian-wide distributed pond mesocosm facility set up to examine the effects of climate change on aquatic biodiversity. For more information read here.
We are thrilled to announce that La Caixa Foundation awarded a PhD studentship in Araujo lab to work on climate change and conservation planning. The studentship is highly competitive and applicants will compete for this position together with applicants for other projects. A description of the project offered can be found below and here: Global climate and land use changes
