CREAF participates in a new COST ACTION to increase understanding of alien species through citizen science10 de May 2019Anna Ramon Revilla
Bernat Claramunt participates in the COST Action AlienCSI to address multidisciplinary research questions to develop and implement citizen science strategies to increase the scientific understanding of IAS ecology and dynamics, specifically informing decision-makers to implement technical requirements of relevant legislation.
Coordinated by CREAF and comprising more than 50 European organizations, NEMOR has produced a document seeking the European Commission's recognition of mountains as a unique setting for activities such as testing related to the effects of climate change, reversing depopulation and promoting new circular economy projects.
A study in which CREAF participates has revealed that marmots reintroduced in the Pyrenees have very low genetic variability because they come from only two alpine areas and have not mixed. Surprisingly, this low genetic diversity has not proved to be an impediment in reintroduction, which has turned out to be a total success.
Created by CREAF and GBIF.ES, Natusfera consists of a web portal and application for mobile devices which will host information about living beings observed in nature including photo sharing and location. The European Citizen Science Association considers Natusfera to be a benchmark model for initiatives of this type, and has proposed that it be translated into as many languages as possible.
Bernat Claramunt, member of the core group of the European Mountain Research Advocacy Network (MRI- Europe), is looking for researchers working on global change issues in European mountains. They want to get your feedback to lobby for a stronger representation of mountain research in future Horizon 2020 calls.
Bernat Claramunt, CREAF researcher, has entered the core group of 6-8 people of the European Mountain Research Advocacy Network (MRI- Europe). He and other researchers will coordinate the future advocacy efforts of MRI- Europe.
