In this post I want to talk about the incision process and present each action I propose in my Master thesis describing the actions, materials used and a budget for the project. In addition, this week will be presented at the International Symposium on Soil and Water Bioengineering in a Changing Climate to be held at GLASGOW, September 7-8. This symposium will be a meeting within the Life + ECOMED project. Incision Process The processes of incision of the channel, form sections deeper and aContinue reading
When I was visiting Everglades National Park, I could not skip Big Cypress National Preserve, located relatively around the corner. After my guided tour and experience in Everglades, I was quite confident that Big Cypress cannot be just a swamp. I was going there with one idea in my mind, to see majestic cypress trees, which I saw only in books at forest botany classes. Read further to learn more about the ecosystem of Big Cypress National Preserve…
Generally, our present understanding of what determines forest management intensity is weak, particularly at broad scales, and this makes it difficult to assess the environmental and social trade-offs of intensification. In this post, I would like to present you the research of international scientists who have analyzed spatial patterns of forest harvesting intensity in Europe.
People who are interested in the ecology of European forests know that the current climatic gradient has a big influence in shaping the distribution and diversity of tree species in the continent. Shrubs and evergreen broadleaves in the southern Mediterranean areas, broadleaf and mixed forests in temperate regions, conifers in north and in the Alps. However, this is just a snapshot. Forests in Europe have varied greatly over the last million years due to the alternating cycle of glacial and interglacial period. Research on thisContinue reading
During my forest education I never had chance to become familiar with agroforestry, until I started my internship at European Forest Institute. Agroforestry is quite large topic, so in this post I would like to explain in a short way what really is agroforestry, where is used, who is responsible for collecting source data and where data related with this topic are stored. Maybe this post would be an inspiration for some forestry student who is not sure which subject to choose for bachelor’s orContinue reading
In this post, I would like to present my Master thesis, something different that we talk about in this blog. I worked for one year in a hydrological restoration project. Besides, it will be presented at the International Symposium on Soil and Water Bioengineering in a Changing Climate which will be in GLASGOW, on 7-8 SEPTEMBER. This Symposium will be a meeting inside the Life+ Project ECOMED.
The European Commission, a managing institution of the European Union, has reported Poland this month to the European Court of Justice, and has asked the court to impose measures requiring the Polish government to suspend logging in the Bialowieza Forest, which is one of the last areas of primeval forest in Europe. In this post, I would like to present you my opinion about the recent conflict in the Białowieża Forest in Poland. I would like to present actors in the conflict, and discuss why thisContinue reading
