SSC Member Gete Zeleke was featured recently in an EcoAgricultural Partners blog post. The piece covers his background, current work with 'landscape learning' at a pilot site, and motivations for his work.
GLP Members Franziska Wolpert, Cristina Quintas-Soriano, and Tobias Plieninger published in Sustainability Science a comparison of the 200-year history of cork, chestnut and olive landscapes and explored the processes of change as well as their driving forces.
Several GLP Members published an article in Global Environmental Change mapping carbon emissions embodied in Brazil's soy exports.
The Telecoupling Working Group would like to invite you to their second webinar dedicated to discussions around the challenges posed by telecouplings to conservation, and the potentials that the telecoupling perspective offers conservation studies.
GLP Members R. Ntsiva N. Andriatsitohaina, Enrico Celio, Jorge Lopis, Adrienne Grêt-Regamey and colleagues have published a paper with insights from two case studies in northeast Madagascar in the Journal of Land Use Science. Part of the paper was presented at the OSM 2019 in Bern.
The UNCCD is now commissioning a small number of working papers for the second edition of the second edition of the Global Land Outlook (GLO2). GLP has been involved with the process and encourages interested members to apply for these consultancies. Deadline for applications is 30 May 2020.
A PhD project is proposed at Bordeaux Sciences Agro (Univ. Bordeaux) and INRAE on the following topic: Could organic farming expansion be limited by the availability of soil phosphorus? A systemic analysis at the global scale. The PhD student will be co-supervised by Prof Thomas Nesme (Univ. Bordeaux) and Dr Sylvain Pellerin (INRAE). Deadline to apply is 15 June 2020.
The Planning of Landscape and Urban Systems (PLUS) group at the Institute for Spatial and Landscape Development (IRL) at ETZ Zuerich focuses on integrating the goals of sustainable spatial and landscape development, economic viability and responsible governance into spatial planning. As part of the teaching and research of the department, we are looking for a science as of August 1, 2020. Deadline to apply is 20 June 2020.
How do ecosystem state and function and ecosystem functional diversity interact? What is the role of animals for carbon and nitrogen turnover? Does altering heterotrophic composition in an ecosystem affect carbon cycle climate feedbacks? The work is based at the KIT’s department of Atmospheric Environmental Research in Garmisch‐Partenkirchen, Germany, and will be done in close collaboration with groups world‐wide, especially in Sweden, and the UK. Deadline to apply extended to 31 May 2020.
