Face to face lecture #1: "Macrophysiology: Regional vegetation dynamics in an era of global change"

The lecture will be held on 27th June 2019 from 15:00 to 16:30 at the Faculty of Forestry and Wood Sciences of the Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague (Kamýcká 129, 165 21 Praha 6 - Suchdol) in room L125. The lecture is free and will be in English.

Lecturer: Jonathan Schurman

Macrophysiology is a developing field, largely motivated by the need to understand the behaviour of ecosystems at large scales. One particular subject of interes tis the response of forest carbon sequestation to climate change. While ecosystem dynamics respond to multiple factors over a variety of scales, macrophysiology recognizes the potential for synchronized observations (over large spatial and temporal domains) to disentangle this factors and move us towards improved predictions of ekosystém dynamics and their role in the earth systém. In my lecture, I review recent progress we have made here at CZU by using a large-scale tree ring database to understand the history of forest ecosystem dynamics in the Carpathain Mountains.

The lecture is carrying out within the project "Future Environmentalists - Linking EU Natural Capital Management to Field Research". The project is supported by the Erasmus+ Program of the European Commission, Key Action 2: Strategic Partnership by means of Activity Agreement № CSP 2018-1-BG01-KA203-047962.
