The monitoring station of Companhia das Lezírias (CL) joined the LIFEPLAN project, as a representative of the montado landscape. Every week and until 2026, the cE3c team will collect the images and sounds recorded automatically by cameras and audiomoths installed on trees, and samples of spores and flying insects collected with a cyclone sampler and a malaise trap. Soil samples will also be collected 8 times a year. This sampling effort will be alternating every year with the correspondent Lisbon urban site. All data collected will be integrating a global dataset to better understand the state of biodiversity on our planet.

A new book was published where Companhia das Lezírias is presented as a case study. This publication strives to show the challenges of forest managers to fulfil the societal demands for forests and especially to integrate the promotion of biodiversity. 44 authors from science, policy, and practice describe in a first section consisting of 12 chapters the driving factors of forest management as national laws and legacies, ownership structures, forest history, and socio-structural conditions. In a second section, 113 authors from forest managers present 32 case examples from 19 European countries that demonstrate the different approaches to integrate the locally requested ecosystem services.

Are you a scientist working in the areas of biodiversity, biogeochemistry, hydrology or socio-ecological research? Do you want to study the natural environment at one of our well-equipped research sites?
eLTER PLUS project provides opportunities to perform research focussed on our LTsER Montado platform.
Transnational Access (TA) - this option enables in-person visits (e.g. to collect and analyse data) to one or more LTER sites/LTSER platforms involved in the scheme.
Remote Access (RA) – enables the execution of activities at sites by the local teams, which are defined by “remote users” (e.g. measurements, data collection, and experiments according to instructions and protocols provided by the remote users).
eLTER PLUS encourages users to combine TA- and RA-related project work where they can test hands-on procedures and refine the protocol at one site, and then have the same protocol performed at other sites remotely.
Please consider that due to possible COVID-related travel restrictions, at present, a focus on RA is recommended.

JaLTER is pleased to announce that Hokkaido University Forests (JaLTER site) will hold a Winter Forest Ecology Course JAPAN from 25th February to 28th February 2020 in Hokkaido.
The target is 3rd and 4th-year undergraduate students and master's students. In this field course, the students will learn basic and applied knowledge about snow function, plant ecology, soil nutrient dynamics, carbon flux, soil faunal activity and silvicultural activity in winter forest.
For the detail, please visit our webpage https://winter-forest-ecology.weebly.com/
The application will be accepted until 30th January.
If you have a question, please contact Makoto Kobayashi (makoto@fsc.hokudai.ac.jp), one of the organizer of the course.
