Biodiversitat i serveis ecosistèmics

Alarmats per la recent pèrdua de biodiversitat, científics dedicats a la conservació de la natura, i cada vegada més responsables polítics han començat a ressaltar els serveis que els ecosistemes proporcionen, com ara: aliments, aigua i aire nets, espais per a esbargir-se i hàbitats per a animals i plantes.

En col·laboració amb un grup d’educadors formals i informals, com ara científics i gestors de boscos i vida salvatge, els estudiants no només aprendran sobre la gestió sostenible dels ecosistemes, sinó que també estudiaran diferents serveis ecosistèmics i el seu valor per al benestar de les societats. Per a això, s’utilitzaran enfocaments d’aprenentatge col·laboratius, basats en problemes i indagacions, juntament amb la Comunitat de Ciència Oberta a Eslovènia. Això busca fomentar la comprensió i apreciació de la diversitat dels serveis ecosistèmics. Aprofitant l’experiència dels socis de MULTIPLIERS, els estudiants aprendran que els serveis ecosistèmics poden competir entre ells i fins i tot si es poden equilibrar, hi pot haver compensacions.

Same trees, different perspectives: using a marteloscope to present forests in a new light

What do you see when you look at a forest? The first, obvious answer could be “trees”, but the more nuanced reality is that forests have different meanings and values to different people. Trees provide important habitats to animals, such as cavities for bats to sleep in and branches for birds to build their nests …
