Quantifying Abrupt Biotic Responses to Palaeoclimate Change (ABRUPT)

Start date: Apr 11, 2016, End date: Apr 10, 2018,

Climate change in the 21st century is predicted to push ecosystems across ecological thresholds, potentially resulting in abrupt ecosystem change into new and irreversible states. Ecological theory proposes that non-linear biotic responses are the result of a complex interplay of feedbacks, thresholds and interactions that operate over decades to thousands of years. As a result, standard ecologica ...

Sample return missions (SRMs) are a critical next step in our exploration of the Solar System and are identified as strategic missions by international space agencies. Europe has a very strong legacy in the curation and research of precious extraterrestrial materials. To maintain European leadership and ensure high-level involvement in future SRMs, a dedicated European Sample Curation Facility (ES ...

"India is a global hotspot for snakebite mortality, yet management of this significant public health issue requires substantial improvement. Many problems arise from lack of knowledge of the biology of biting species, and much remains to be learned about taxonomy, distribution, and venom characteristics of species such as Russell’s viper (widely considered to be the most dangerous snake in the wor ...

Synthesis of systematic resources (SYNTHESYS3)

Start date: Sep 1, 2013, End date: Aug 31, 2017,

SYNTHESYS3 will create an accessible, integrated European resource for researchers in the natural sciences in Europe and globally. Building on the success of the previous SYNTHESYS IA, the NA will focus on improving collections management of new physical and virtual collections. By focusing the JRA on extracting and enhancing data from digitised collections, SYNTHESYS3 will increase the accessibil ...

EU BON: Building the European Biodiversity Observation Network (EU BON)

Start date: Dec 1, 2012, End date: May 31, 2017,

Sustainable governance of our biological resources requires reliable scientific knowledge that meets the needs of society. Current biodiversity observation systems and environmental datasets are unbalanced in coverage and not integrated, limiting integrative analyses and implementation of environmental policies.EU BON presents an innovative approach towards integration of biodiversity information ...

Managing Impacts of Deep-seA reSource exploitation (MIDAS)

Start date: Nov 1, 2013, End date: Oct 31, 2016,

The MIDAS project addresses fundamental environmental issues relating to the exploitation of deep-sea mineral and energy resources; specifically polymetallic sulphides, manganese nodules, cobalt-rich ferromanganese crusts, methane hydrates and the potential mining of rare earth elements. These new industries will have significant impacts on deep-sea ecosystems, in some cases extending over hundre ...

The proposed project aims to investigate and understand the development of seasonality in terrestrial ecosystems of Northern Hemisphere during the last 23 million years, which caused massive ecosystem transformations, such as the spread of grasslands over large fractions of the globe. The project will concentrate on giving the researcher, Jussi T. Eronen, training in vegetation modelling and under ...

UNDESERT aims at combatting desertification and land degradation in order to mitigate their impacts on ecosystem services, and following on human livelihoods. The West African region is central for understanding desertification and degradation processes, which are already severe and widespread as a consequence of climate change and human impact. An improved understanding of the effects of desertif ...

Monitoring and Evaluation of Spatially Managed Areas (MESMA) (MESMA)

Start date: Nov 1, 2009, End date: Oct 31, 2013,

The increasing pressures upon the marine realm call for a well planned approach of further spatial development of this area. An ecosystem-based approach to fisheries, the increasing demand for sustainable energy, coastal defence systems, building materials and safe transport routes and the need to protect marine habitats and species all compete for the same valuable space. At the same time climate ...

Hotspot Ecosystem Research and Man's Impact on European seas (HERMIONE)

Start date: Apr 1, 2009, End date: Sep 30, 2012,

The HERMIONE project is designed to make a major advance in our knowledge of the functioning of deep-sea ecosystems and their contribution to the production of goods and services. This will be achieved through a highly interdisciplinary approach (including biologists, ecologists, microbiologists, biogeochemists, sedimentologists, physical oceanographers, modelers and socio-economists) that will in ...
