Soil Ecology

Sunday 27 - Thursday 31 January 2019
How can we fully exploit the multifunctional potential of soils? And how is the soil’s functionality impacted by land-use intensification and climate change? This is the theme for the 7th edition of the international PhD course on Soil Ecology.

GIS in Practice

Monday 4 - Friday 15 February 2019
GIS is commonly used as a tool to deal with spatial information. Although GIS packages are becoming increasingly user-friendly, the conceptual model behind the storage, analysis, and display is still essential to properly deal with these systems. This course aims to give an overview of this conceptual model, after which it will go in-depth in the use of ArcGIS using a number of practical cases.

Bugs at your Service - Fundamentals and application of arthropod-mediated ecosystem services

Sunday 31 March - Friday 5 April 2019
This course we will provide an overview of concepts and tools that can contribute to the design of multifunctional landscapes that are better suited to capitalize on ecosystem services in conjunction with other land-use functions. The focus of the course will be on consumer-resource interactions underlying pollination and biocontrol services, the spatial ecology of pollinators and natural enemies, the impact of pest management practices on arthropod-mediated ecosystem services, and the design of multifunctional landscapes that support arthropod-mediated ecosystem services as well as other land-use functions.
