It’s already available CREAF Talk by Scott Ollinger about nitrogen and carbon assimilation in forests

A new video of CREAF Talks conferences is now available. Scott Ollinger, from University of New Hampshire, USA, talks about basic relations among foliar N and CO2 assimilation in forests, relationships between N concentrations and a suite of functionally convergent plant traits that influence canopy reflectance, and implications for broad-scale N mapping and ecosystem—climate interactions.

The CREAF Talk video about animal innovation by Louis Lefebvre

The researcher from McGill University, in Quebec, and CREAF associated, visited us again to talk about animal innovation from different points of view, from the ecological implications to the physiological characteristics that allow it.

It’s already available CREAF Talk by Roderick Dewar about macroecological patterns

The fourth video of the CREAF Talks conferences is now available. Roderick Dewar, from the Australian National University, presents an approach inspired by how complex systems are modelled in physics.

Two new CREAFTalk videos available

Two new conferences are already available, corresponding to Mirco Migliavacca (Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry, Germany) and Carles Pedrós Alió (National Center of Biotechnology, CSIC, Spain). Mirco told us about the physiological and structural response of vegetation in manipulation experiments. Carles explained how climate change can affect bacteria, and what can bacteria do to climate change.
