New design of BioMAP

 

BioMAP - Biomonitoring of Atmospheric Pollution -

 

is an international scientific organization that provides an opportunity for an inter-change of ideas among researchers, policy-makers and practitioners in environmental sciences. Attention will be focused on qualitative and quantitative aspects on biomonitoring of atmospheric pollutants with biological species.

 

Chairman: Prof. Dr. Bert Wolterbeek, NL

The 13th International Conference of the Arab Academy of Sciences
 

"Climate Change and Water-Energy-Nexus in the Arab Middle East”

 

 

The conference is going to continue with the emphasis on the most important problems facing the Arab Middle East. Conferences until 2013 were focussed on water, energy and their intimate co-dependence. In 2014 the conference expanded its scope to include the important issue of Food Security and its strong connection with both water and energy. In 2015 the conference will further expand its scope by paying special attention to the role of climate change and how it is affecting the Energy-Food Water Nexus in general and especially in the Arab Middle East... more information

Fukushima Excursion

After the ICOBTE Conference in Fukuoka we had the possibility to join the Fukushima Excursion organized by the University of Fukushima.It is over four years since the Great East Japan Earthquake/ tsunami and the subsequent nuclear accident happened. In this excursion starting in Sendai, it was possible to visit Okuma, a town located at approximately 5 km west of TEPCO Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Until today Okuma is a restricted area (difficult to return zone). Within this area members of the Fukushima University are operating experimental fields to examine ways to reduce radiocesium uptake by crops.

Experimental Field of the University of Fukushima in the restricted area Okuma (dificult to return zone), approximately 5 km west of TEPCO Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (16th July 2015).

About 80 participants from 20 countries joined the BIOMAP workshop.

BIOMAP 7

 

The 7th International Workshop on Biomonitoring of Atmospheric Pollution (BIOMAP) was held in the city of Lisbon, Portugal, from June 14-19 2015.
This was the third time that BIOMAP has been organized in Lisbon. We would like to say thank you for that fantastic and successfully important meeting especially to the members of the Instituto Superior Técnico:

Marta Almeida, Marina Almeida-Silva, Joana Lage, Carla Ramos, Catarina Galinha, Nuno Canha,Tiago Faria, Alexandra Silva, Maria do Carmo Freitas and Isabel Dionísio

Prof. Dr. Helmut Lieth

 

 

We mourn the loss of Prof. Dr. Helmut Lieth

 

One of the world's best known ecologists, visionary and pioneer of the environmental system sciences passed away on 16 April 2015

 

Dr. Lieth’s research work focused further on environmental influences on plant growth, particularly how low light limits plant growth. He also became interested in how plants are distributed globally in relation to the local environments. By 1960 this had resulted in a seminal cartographic work, the Climate Diagram World Atlas. This very large volume quantified the local climates throughout the countries and regions of the world, graphically illustrating for each location the patterns of temperature and rainfall. The global nature of this work was of great interest in the scientific community, so that the start of the 1960's began his rise to international prominence as a scientist who understood ecology on a global scale.

 

Prof. Dr. Bernd Markert, one of his former doctoral students, loses with Prof. Lieth not only an outstanding scientist, but also a friend.
