CREAF’s first international newsletter is out!

We have published the first international CREAF’s newsletter with the purpose of improving our visibility, reputation and recruitment of talent. Its common thread is ecology as a solution and it includes current events as diverse as ‘la Caixa’ postdoctoral scholarships with the experience of Oriol Lapiedra and the opinion of Marc Palahí, director of the European Forest Institute, about his previous work with us.

First international CREAF’s newsletter

This first issue also includes the mention by the European Environment Agency of a work by Lluís Brotons and Virgilio Hermoso on connecting protected areas with green infrastructures; a study by Josep Peñuelas on the threat of ozone to biodiversity and the participation of Pilar Andrés in a European report to restore biodiversity and ecosystem services. We also highlight a study on volatile organic compounds in the Amazon, led by Ana María Yáñez, and the two new projects EOTisT, with Lluís Pesquer, and FRAMEworks, with Cristina Domingo, one more step in the international projection of CREAF in Earth observation, remote sensing, agrobiodoversity and citizen science. In this area, the agenda echoes the inaugural conference of Geospatial Sensing Virtual 2020 by Joan Masó, held at the beginning of September.

We hope that it will become key to the internationalization of the Center.

High CO2 concentration in the atmosphere impoverishes rice farmland

The high concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere reduces by more than 20% the availability of phosphorus in rice paddies worldwide, an indispensable fertiliser mineral. This puts countries with low purchasing power at a disadvantage in terms of the cost of phosphorus fertiliser, and further widens economic inequality due to CO2 emissions and impacts on geochemical processes.
