CICES

Ausgeschrieben: 
Common International Classification of Ecosystem Services
Beschreibung: 
he Common International Classification of Ecosystem Services (CICES) developed from the work on environmental accounting undertaken by the European Environment Agency (EEA). It supports their contribution to the revision of the System of Environmental-Economic Accounting (SEEA) which is currently being led by the United Nations Statistical Division (UNSD). The idea of a common international classification is an important one, because it was recognised that if ecosystem accounting methods were to be developed and comparisons made, then some standardisation in the way we describe ecosystem services was needed. Standardisation was seen as especially important where the link to economic accounting has to be made. Since the original proposal interest in CICES has grown. It has now become clear that in addition to the need for standardization in the context of environmental accounting, work on mapping and valuing ecosystem services and ecosystems assessments more generally would benefit from more systematic approaches to naming and describing ecosystem services. For example, experts involved with the ‘Mapping and assessment of ecosystems and their services’ (MAES) which forms part of the European Union’s Biodiversity 2020 Strategy, have also made comments on the structure of CICES and suggested some additions. The EEA also consider that CICES may assist in their future work on ecosystem services.

IFMN

Ausgeschrieben: 
Interessengemeinschaft für Marine Nachzuchten
Beschreibung: 
Our interest community was founded by a couple of people from different countries, which are interested in breeding marine animals in the aquarium. These members are not only professional breeders, also people who breed plankton and other feeding animals. Other members are cracks for the aquarium technology. It doesn´t matter if the breeding ist done for commercial purposes or just for the fun of it. The IFMN is an open plattform to talk and discuss about different ways to breed marin life and to give starters the help they need. If you are interested in giving it a try or you need help, or you have an article which you want to share with us you are very welcome.

ZGAP

Ausgeschrieben: 
Zoologische Gesellschaft für Arten- und Populationsschutz e.V.
Beschreibung: 
The ZGAP was founded in 1982 by a small group of dedicated conservationists in Munich and shortly thereafter by the Munich tax office recognized as particularly worthy of support. The aim of the Society is primarily the preservation of little-known endangered species and protecting their habitats. While the risk of extinction of mountain gorillas, giant pandas and Java rhinos already widely known of the natural population is interested, there are thousands of highly endangered species, whose names are familiar even experts often barely. For lack of knowledge even in the last few years - even great - species died out, unnoticed by the public.
