Gesellschaft für Tropenökologie e.V.

Beschreibung: 
The Society for Tropical Ecology (formerly Gesellschaft für Tropenökologie e.V., gtö) promotes and communicates new and emerging knowledge among tropical ecologists to advance the understanding of tropical ecosystems and their protection. It is currently Europe’s largest scientific association in this field of research with about 500 members.

LUCAS

Ausgeschrieben: 
Land Use/Cover Area frame Survey
Beschreibung: 
The Land use/cover area frame statistical survey, abbreviated as LUCAS, is a European field survey program funded and executed by Eurostat. Its objective is to set up area frame surveys for the provision of coherent and harmonised statistics on land use and land cover in the European Union (EU). In addition, it is to provide information on agriculture, the environment, landscapes and sustainable development, ground evidence for calibration of satellite images and a register of points for specific surveys (such as soil, biodiversity etc.) and for the core European in-situ data collection network. Land cover and land use are of high importance in the definition and evaluation of common agricultural and environment policies. LUCAS was launched as a pilot in 2001 following Decision 1445/2000/EC of 22 May 2000 on the application of aerial-survey and remote-sensing techniques to the agricultural statistics.

Euro-limpacs

Ausgeschrieben: 
Euro-limpacs
Beschreibung: 
Euro-limpacs was an EU funded Framework 6 project concerned with the effects of climate change on freshwater systems (rivers, streams, lakes and wetlands). In particular the Project sought to understand the effects on these vulnerable ecosystems of the interactions between changing climate and other potentially damaging processes caused by changes in the physical characteristics of rivers, nutrient pollution, acidification and the deposition of toxic metals and organic pollutants. Euro-limpacs examined how these multiple effects impact on efforts to manage freshwater ecosystems, in particular the implication for meeting the requirements of legislation such as the Water Framework Directive and Habitats Directive. The Project finished in January 2009 after 5 years. REFRESH builds on the improved scientific understanding generated in Euro-limpacs to enable the successful implementation of adaptation strategies to combat the deleterious effects of climate change on freshwater ecosystems.

EPOCA

Ausgeschrieben: 
European Project on OCean Acidification
Beschreibung: 
The “European Project of Ocean Acidification” (EPOCA) is the EU initiative to investigate “Ocean acidification and its consequences”. The kick off meeting took place in Nice (France) on 10-13 June 2008. The overall goal of EPOCA is to fill the numerous gaps in our understanding of the effects and implications of ocean acidification. The project comprises 16 work packages. The EPOCA consortium comprises more than 100 researchers from 29 laboratories located in 9 countries. It is coordinated by Jean-Pierre Gattuso assisted by an Executive Board (Jelle Bijma, Marion Gehlen, Ulf Riebesell and Carol Turley).

EC - JRC

Ausgeschrieben: 
European Commission – Joint Research Center
Beschreibung: 
The Joint Research Centre is the scientific and technical arm of the European Commission. It is providing the scientific advice and technical know-how to support a wide range of EU policies. Its status as a Commission service, which guarantees independence from private or national interests, is crucial for pursuing its mission: "As the Commission's in-house science service, the Joint Research Centre's mission is to provide EU policies with independent, evidence-based scientific and technical support throughout the whole policy cycle. Working in close cooperation with policy Directorates-General, the JRC addresses key societal challenges while stimulating innovation through developing new methods, tools and standards, and sharing its know-how with the Member States, the scientific community and international partners.

European Citizen Science Association
Beschreibung: 
Founded in 2013, ECSA will advance and promote citizen science in a Europe where citizens are valued as a key component advancing knowledge about the sustainable development of our world. Key objectives are to: • support the growth of national citizen science communities across the EU; • share knowledge and skills on citizen science; • develop EU wide citizen science programmes; • identify, develop and promote best practice and excellence in citizen science; • collaborate with the growing international citizen science community.

European Journal Of Taxonomy

Beschreibung: 
EJT is an international, fully electronic, Open Access journal in descriptive taxonomy, covering subjects in zoology, entomology, botany, and palaeontology. EJT-papers must be original and of high scientific (content) and technical (language, art work,..) standard. Manuscripts that are clearly substandard in either of these categories will not be sent out for review. EJT is carried by a consortium of (European) natural history institutes, but its scope is global. Both authorship and geographical region of study need not be European. Authors are, however, invited to involve European natural history collections by consulting extant material, or by depositing (type-) material related to the published paper in the collection of a European Natural History Institute. EJT is published and funded by a consortium of (European) natural history museums, consequently, publishing in and access to EJT is free: neither authors, nor readers have to pay fees or subscriptions. Coordinating institutional resources into a single publishing platform contributes to excellence, prevents repetition, and increases efficiency in the dissemination of taxonomic data, while providing a secure long-term platform at minimal cost. EJT aims to be a high standard, fully free taxonomic journal that offers all the modern interactive web-based facilities of a high-level, high impact journal. Printed versions of EJT papers are stored in the institutions making up the consortium and distributed to some major natural history museums and institutions to comply with the rules of the different nomenclatural codes.
