14th International Deep-Sea Biology Symposium

10/02/2016



14th Deep-Sea Biology Symposium



The 14th Deep-Sea Biology Symposium (http://14dsbs.web.ua.pt/) was held in Aveiro from the 30th August to the 4th September 2015. During a week deep-sea biologists and ecologists from all around the world were gathered to present and discuss the latest advances in deep-sea research. In total there were 380 participants from 35 countries, representing universities, private and government institutes, NGOs, industry, and the media. More than 200 oral communications and 250 posters were presented in broad thematic sessions: 1. Biodiversity and ecosystem functioning (including pelagic and hadal systems, canyons, seamounts, vents, seeps and organic falls, trophic ecology and microbial processes); 2. Advances in taxonomy and phylogeny; 3. Autoecology; 4. Connectivity and biogeography; 5. Evolutionary history and fossil records; 6. Natural and anthropogenic disturbance (including a special session on mining impacts); 7. Stewardship of our deep oceans. Noteworthy was the increase in presentations addressing conservation and stewardship topics. Many deep-sea related initiatives have also contributed to the symposium by organizing open meetings to provide information on their progress and the opportunity for the community to engage in their activities. The discussions promoted in these “side-meetings” will undoubtedly be wellsprings of cooperation and creation of new projects. The 14DSBS was also the official launching platform of two important initiatives: the European Marine Board 22nd position paper (Delving Deeper: Critical challenges for 21st century deep-sea research) and the Deep-sea Biology Society.

Seminário final do projeto europeu LAGOONS

O projecto Europeu LAGOONS, financiado pela União Europeia no âmbito do Sétimo Programa-Quadro (FP7), tem por objetivo contribuir para a gestão integrada de lagunas costeiras, sendo a Ria de Aveiro um dos casos de estudo, envolvendo a ligação entre Ciência, Políticas e Atores-chave. A metodologia participativa adoptada no âmbito do LAGOONS culminou com a apresentação e discussão com as partes interessadas (atores-chave) de possíveis cenários, desenvolvidos pela equipa multidisciplinar do projecto, de forma a estabelecer uma visão conjunta sobre o cenário futuro desejável para a Ria de Aveiro num horizonte a 20 anos e as medidas que deverão ser tomadas de forma a alcançá-lo.


Assim, com a aproximação do final do projeto, o objetivo seminário final é apresentar os resultados do projeto Europeu LAGOONS. Esta atividade terá lugar no auditório do Departamento de Ambiente e Ordenamento da Universidade de Aveiro, no próximo dia 25 de setembro de 2014, da parte da tarde (14h00-16h00).
