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!
In their talk, the authors address the sensitivities and uncertainties of a vegetation model (LPJ-GUESS) within Europe. In particular, they found that climatic factors provide the largest uncertainty contributions and influence the uncertainty contributions of other processes such as water or mortality. Furthermore, the authors found that the processes of the model implicitly incorporate the […]
On the weekend 13.-15.11.2020 our PhD student Anne Lewerentz took part in an Innovation Challenge of the Bavarian State Ministry of Digital Affairs (https://code-bavaria.de/innovation-challenge).

From Oct 5th to Oct 7th BLIZ organises a virtual conference “How to predict future land use and biodiversity change under climatic change at the regional level” in cooperation with bayklif. We can expect exciting contributions from international speakers and workshops.
In an interdisciplinary course of the Center for Computational and Theoretical Biology Subproject 2 and the Games Engineering group developed a computer game on aquatic plants at the Institute for Computer Science at the Julius-Maximilians-University of Würzburg. The goal of the simulation game is to impart knowledge about the ecosystem of the Bavarian lakes and […]
