    Protected areas and nature recovery in the UK

  2. Insectageddon: is global insect extinction real?

    News headlines in recent years have proclaimed that over 40% of all insect species are in decline, and many approach extinction. But are these numbers correct? Is the reality better, or even much worse, than we think?

    Entomologist, broadcaster, and author Professor Adam Hart leads a panel debate of international insect experts to discuss these headlines, crunch the numbers and analyse the fact and fiction behind global insect extinction.

    Join Adam alongside National Museums Scotland entomology collection curator Ashleigh Whiffin, insect decline ecologist Dr Manu Saunders, and biodiversity specialist Dr Nick Isaac to find out the latest on this contentious and vital issue and ask your questions to the panel.

    Organised by the British Ecological Society in association with the Royal Entomological Society for celebrating ‘Insect Week’

    Our panel:
    Adam Hart is an entomologist, Trustee of the Royal Entomological Society, and Professor of Science Communication at the University of Gloucestershire. As well as research and teaching, he is a regular broadcaster for BBC Radio 4 and the BBC World Service, presenting documentaries on topics from trophy hunting to tree diseases. He has also presented the weekly science program Science in Action for the BBC World Service. On television, Adam has co-presented several documentary series, most notably BBC4’s Planet Ant and BBC2’s Hive Alive. Adam is also an author of many popular science books, including ‘Unfit for Purpose: when human evolution collides with the modern world’

    Dr Nick Isaac is a macroecologist at the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology. His research team develops methods for the analysis of biodiversity data, including for unstructured occurrence records and for biodiversity indicators. His research describes trends in biodiversity and investigates the causes of these trends, mostly using data on UK invertebrates.

    Ashleigh Whiffin is Assistant Curator of Entomology at National Museums Scotland, responsible for the care and development of the insect collection, containing approximately 2.5 million specimens. Her research focuses around carrion ecology, specialising on Carrion Beetles (which are vital for the decomposition of vertebrate remains), for which she also co-organises a National Recording Scheme for. She works closely with several entomological groups to promote her subject, including working with the Royal Entomological Society’s Outreach & Development committee and is the current Chair of Edinburgh Entomological Club; and internationally, she is co-communications officer for the Entomological Collections Network.

    Dr Manu Saunders is a Lecturer in Ecology at the University of New England, Armidale, Australia. Manu has published critical articles about the widely reported ‘insect apocalypse’. Her research focuses largely on how insects create links between habitats and people, and how land use changes and agricultural management influences biodiversity and ecosystem processes at local and landscape scales. Manu is also a science communicator, and founder of ‘Wild Pollinator Count’, a non-profit organisation promoting evidence-based conservation of native pollinator insects across Oceania.

  3. Ecology Live with Jason Tylianakis - Unravelling the web of life

    The British Ecological Society is broadcasting free online talks on the latest ecological research throughout Spring 2021. Sponsored by Oxford University Press

    Jason M. Tylianakis of University of Canterbury, New Zealand presents his talk 'Unravelling the web of life: species interactions in a changing world'

    Global environmental changes are driving species extinctions, which can influence ecosystem functioning. Many ecosystem processes involve interactions among many different species within a community, and these networks of interactions may be disrupted long before the species involved go extinct.

    "I’ll show how methods such as resource partitioning and trait matching can provide understanding of how network structure influences ecosystem functioning. Unfortunately, interaction networks can propagate environmental change effects across landscapes, but these influences may be predictable."

    These talks are aimed at anyone with an interest in the latest research in ecology and its applications, from undergraduates to working ecologists and research leaders. We have a full season of 12 exciting talks with world leading researchers, so register here to enjoy them live: https://www.britishecologicalsociety....

  7. Waterstof, duizenddingen-doekje van de energietransitie
    Uitgever:Change Inc.
    Waterstofproductie is een hot issue in het klimaatbeleid. Maar hoe bereik je de definitieve doorbraak van dit ‘duizenddingendoekje’ van de energietransitie? Een volwassen waterstofmarkt bestaat nog niet. Dat moet snel veranderen, vindt klimaatminister Rob Jetten. Maar hóe die markt vorm moet krijgen, dat is het hoofdthema in de derde aflevering van Change Report Talk.

  11. Bat Behaviour: North American Bats and White-Nose Syndrome
    https://vimeo.com/674471297
    Learn about the devastating disease threatening Manitoba's bats and how you can help in this CPAWS webinar with Dr. Craig Willis.

    In 2006, a microscopic fungus arrived in North America causing white-nose syndrome, a devastating fungal disease in bats, and one of the most drastic declines ever observed in an animal group.

    Since then, white-nose syndrome has killed tens of millions of bats. Mortality rates reached 100 per cent in some caves. And three species are now listed as endangered in Canada, including the little brown bat, previously the most abundant and widespread bat species in North America.

    Join us for a CPAWS Manitoba webinar with Dr. Craig Willis, Professor of Biology at the University of Winnipeg, whose bat lab has been studying white-nose syndrome for more than 15 years. He discusses the dangers of white-nose syndrome to Manitoba’s bats, the research being done to identify, protect, and improve critical bat habitats, and how you can get involved in monitoring bat populations in Manitoba.

    About the speaker

    Dr. Craig Willis is a Professor of Biology at the University of Winnipeg who has been studying the behaviour, ecology, and physiology of bats for over 20 years. His research on bats and white-nose syndrome has been covered by a range of national and international media including CBC's 'The Current' and 'Quirks and Quarks', CTV National News, the Guardian (UK), and the Los Angeles Times.

    How can we help?

    If you have any questions or require any additional accommodations to participate, please email us at outreach@cpawsmb.org.

    About CPAWS Manitoba:

    CPAWS Manitoba has been instrumental in establishing 22 new parks and protected areas in our province. That's an area larger than Lake Winnipeg at nearly 26,000 square kilometres. Our goal is to protect half of Manitoba’s lands and waters.

    --Lunch and Learns--

    Nature has been here for us during the pandemic.

    CPAWS Manitoba wants to maintain this positive connection to nature by providing a space for Manitobans to connect online from the safety of our homes and be inspired by nature in our backyards and beyond.

Crowdsourcing platforms like eMammal (emammal.si.edu), Agouti (agouti.eu), and Zooniverse (www.zooniverse.org) function as collaborative portals to collect data from different projects and provide tools to volunteers to annotate images, e.g., with species labels of the individuals therein. Such platforms drastically reduce the cost of data processing (e.g., ref. 27 reports a reduction of seventy thousand dollars), but the rapid increase in the volume and velocity of data collection is making such approaches unsustainable.

    Op donderdag 17 februari 2022, het lijkt alweer jaren geleden met alles wat ondertussen gebeurt, vond het Webinar Basiskwaliteit Natuur Drenthe plaats. De ‘’basiskwaliteit natuur’’ gaat over de minimale kwaliteit van het landschap (inrichting), milieucondities en gebruik en beheer die nodig is om algemene soorten algemeen te laten worden, zijn en houden. Het realiseren van een basiskwaliteit is met name gericht op gebieden buiten de reeds beschermde natuurgebieden (Natuurnetwerk Nederland en Natura 2000-gebieden). https://www.heeldrenthezoemt.nl/nieuws/webinar-basiskwaliteit-natuur-drenthe/
