On October 8 until October 10 Munich’s Science Days (Münchner Wissenschaftstage) took place at the Deutsches Museum Verkehrszentrum. PhD student Anne Lewerentz presented her video game. The goal of the simulation game is to impart knowledge about the ecosystem of the Bavarian lakes and the effects of water quality and climate conditions on aquatic plants.
The 50th Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society took place virtually from August 30th until September 1st. Sven Rubanschi held a presentation on “Environmental conditions drive the potential biotope composition in Bavaria”. He showed how environmental variables can be used to predict the distribution of Bavarian biotopes and how the potential biotope composition would look […]
The DGL Jahrestagung took place in Leipzig from September 27th until October1st. The limnological conference displayed the topic: “When extremes become normality – inland waters under climate change”. Anne Lewerentz held a presentation with the title “Modelling the distribution of submerged macrophyte species in Bavaria under climate and land-use change”.
The BLIZ team participated in the 2nd bayklif retreat at the Evangelische Akademie Tutzing on September 28 and 29. Each bayklif project gave insights and updates on their work. In parallel sessions, there were workshops on forests and biodiversity, as well as on the Atlas of Ecosystem Services and science communication. In between, there was […]
On July 9th the 9th BLIZ Workshop took place via Zoom. The workshop started with guests from Uni Bayreuth: Prof. Dr. Thomas Köllner and his PhD students R. Riebl and M. Versluis from the LandKLIF-team presented the Bavarian Atlas of Ecosystem Services. Subsequently, we discussed collaboration ideas. During the internal part of the workshop each […]
Prof. Dr. Johannes Sauer was a guest on BR alpha-demokratie with the topic “Farmers and agricultural policy” on June 21st. Watch it here.
Anne Lewerentz gave a talk “Multidimensional distribution of submerged macrophyte species diversity in deep lakes” during the virtual meeting on June 25th. Furthermore, she contributed at the “Conceptual and Performance Arts Contest” with her bioDIVERsity computergame’s video and won first prize! She also joined the “Fun Challenge” with a Mini-Video on Twitter and won third […]
The summer school will take place online in 5 days spread out along 5 weeks starting 21st June, with 1 full day per week (Mondays). Both morning and afternoon sessions will encompass lecture and practical components. The first four weeks will cover themes providing important skills for collaborative research and data/model exploration. In the first […]
On March 1st we had our 8th BLIZ Workshop. We listened to updates from the subprojects discussed this year’s meetings and the BLIZ Summerschool in July. In the discussion groups further collaborations between the subprojects were started and existing collaborations were deepened.
On Thursday, Jan. 14th, the Seminar Waldbau, Ökosystemdynamik und Forstplanung takes place (15:00 – 17:00) via webex. The BLIZ PhD-candidate Sebastian Rössert will present results on land-use modelling on Bavarian agricultural farms.Write me an email (email@example.com) to join the seminar!
