Hei, alle påmeldte til årets todagers NiN-kurs!

Da har Artsdatabanken laget sider for lenkene til presentasjonene/foredragene:

https://www.artsdatabanken.no/Pages/288512/Foredrag_fra_NiN-kurs_2020

Takk til Artsdatabanken for rask levering!

 

Det blir altså ikke noe live streaming/webinar.  Dere får til gjengjeld en svært fleksibel løsning, og kan drive selvstudium når det passer.

Vi kan ikke love at alt av foredrag er på plass "på dagen", men de legges ut så fort vi får til under de rådende arbeidsforhold.

Dere vil få en blanding av live-opptak fra 2019 og skrivebordsopptak fra 2020. Siden noen av presentasjonene er tilnærmet identiske med fjorårets, så vil formodentlig 2019-opptakene være bedre, siden disse er live auditoriumsopptak.

Vi jobber nå med et nettskjema med NiN-spørsmål som vi prøver lage slik at dere lærer mer om NiN og kartlegging av å fylle det ut, og at det ikke bare er en øvelse dere gjør for å få tilsendt en PDF med bekreftelse på deltagelse på vårt digitale NiN-kurs 2020.

Årets kursbekreftelse blir da likeverdig med tidligere års.

Vi sender dere mail med lenke til nettskjemaet når dette er klart.

NHM 13. mars + oppdatert 16. mars med lenker for 2020

Hilsen NiN-teamet

Natur i Endring 2.0: We would like to showcase our new version of the app for citizen science data collection. We implemented some new features and we would like to get some feedback and motivate you to test out the app in the field. Any constructive criticism and new ideas are welcome.

Best regards

Michal

As a measure to prevent spread of Coronavirus the seminar has been cancelled. 

«Regjeringen foreslår at driftshvilen i Svea/Lunckefjell avsluttes, og at det settes i gang opprydding etter gruvevirksomheten. Det vises til omtale under programkategori 17.40 Statlig eierskap og kap. 900, post 31 Miljøtiltak Svea og Lunckefjell» (Prop. 1 S (2017–2018)).

Dimension-reduction techniques are a useful class of methods in the toolbox of any ecologist. Dimension-reduction techniques, better known as ordination, have been applied in ecology for more than 50 years. In recent years, a more statistically correct method, called Generalized Linear Latent Variable Models (GLLVMs) has become available. GLLVMs are a model-based approach to ordination, but are also known as Joint Species Distribution Models (JSDMs).

 

In this seminar, Bert van der Veen, who is a PhD candidate in statistics at NIBIO and NTNU, will give an overview of GLLVMs and outline some of their connections to more classical ordination methods.

Fire has been a key factor in shaping the ecology of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem for thousands of years. Native plant species evolved adaptations so they survive and, in some cases, flourish after periodic fires. But as the climate becomes hotter and drier, the fire patterns in the boreal forests in North-West America are changing. Big and severe fires are now burning with higher frequency, and this could pose a threat to the resilience of these complex ecosystems. What does that mean for the forests of the future?

In this seminar, Trond Simensen, who has recently been a visiting scholar at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, will present research from Yellowstone and other boreal forests in the northern Rocky Mountains.

Eva Lieungh Eriksen will give a presentation titled Planet of the Plants, aimed at teachers on "Faglig-pedagogisk" day: Why is the planet chemically imbalanced, what are the trees really up to, and how are these questions related? In the global cycles of matter and energy a single plant seems very small, but plants shape our planet in more ways than most people realise through physics, chemistry and biology. This talk will present the place of plants in the Earth Systems, with familiar Norwegian examples.

Welcome to the seminar “Urban biodiversity: measurement and modelling challenges for a policy-relevant ecology”, where professor Olav Skarpaas (GEco group)  will present some ongoing work on biodiversity in Oslo.

Many cities are situated in areas with high biodiversity. Oslo offers an excellent example of this challenging combination of being both a human and a biodiversity hotspot. Olav will present methodological challenges as well as solutions to quantifying rare biodiversity elements and assess the magnitude of human impact. This involves uncertainties at several levels, but may serve as a starting point for defining and estimating reference states and building biodiversity and ecosystem accounts.
