WISM - GPA

Ausgeschrieben: 
World Information Sharing Mechanism for the Global Plan of Action for PGRFA
Beschreibung: 
WISM-GPA, the world information sharing mechanism on the implementation of the Global Plan of Action (GPA) for plant genetic resources for food and agriculture (PGRFA), provides access to National Mechanisms' portals and databases on conservation and sustainable use of PGRFA, established by 75 countries worldwide with the participation and contribution of more than 1,150 public institutions, non-governmental and private organizations, including farmers' associations, from the PGRFA world community that, day by day, conserve, monitor, multiply, improve, exchange and make available these resources essential to our and our planet's life.

NED

Ausgeschrieben: 
Nearshore Ecosystem Database
Beschreibung: 
Stretching over 1,100 miles, California's coastline is the gateway to a unique and often under-appreciated marine ecosystem. Offshore, just below the surface, kelp forests and rocky reefs are home to a vast array of marine life that supports a wide variety of consumptive and non-consumptive human uses. Similar to other reefs around the world, population growth, coastal development, pollution, and overfishing have placed increasing demands and stresses on our nearshore resources. Reef Check California is a network of informed and involved citizens, scientists and organizations that support the sustainable use and conservation of our nearshore marine resources. NED is your tool to input data from Reef Check California Surveys and view/query data collected at Reef Check California sites.

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.

LPJ model

Ausgeschrieben: 
Lund - Potsdam - Jena Dynamic Global Vegetation Model
Beschreibung: 
The LPJ model combines process-based, large-scale representations of terrestrial vegetation dynamics and land-atmosphere carbon and water exchanges in a modular framework. Features include feedback through canopy conductance between photosynthesis and transpiration, and interactive coupling between these “fast” processes and other ecosystem processes, including resource competition, tissue turnover, population dynamics, soil organic matter and litter dynamics, and fire disturbance.
