Interview with project scientific coordinator Andrew Liebhold about his involvment in EVA project
Promising results on interactions among trees and its insect defoliators under the global climate change
Our team in subprogram 1 successfully published article in eLife relating to dogs magnetoreception.
Our researchers are interested in areas of clean and circular economy or efficient building
Sampling termite baits, completing collections and weighing organic matter from leaf collectors or taking termite samples, all and much more, was the goal of the expedition of representatives from the Faculty of Forestry and Wood Sciences to Papua New Guinea (PNG). The trip was attended by Jiří Synek, Oto Nakládal and Jana Vokurková as part of the EVA 4.0 project. The journey to PNG began at the end of November last year and the survey lasted until 13th December, when the expedition returned to the Czech Republic.
As part of the EVA 4.0 project an international team of insect population ecologists is assembling at CZU to work on the use of mathematical models for identifying and managing newly invaded insect populations. The team consists of Dr. Takehiko Yamanaka (National Institute for Agro-Environmental Sciences, Tsukuba, Japan), Yutaka Osada (Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan) and Andrew Liebhold, team leader EVA subproject 4, “Reconstructing global insect invasion dynamics”
M. V. Lantschner visited EVA 4.0 team at CULS to analyze the global patterns of historical bark and ambrosia beetle
Pick up the first set of samples from the field experiment, check the experimental area and ensure its functionality, measure the organic matter abundance or collect enough live termites for laboratory experiments and bring the collected samples back to the Czech Republic, these were the goals of the trip to Papua New Guinea (PNG) within the EVA4.0 project.
After several months of reconstruction, national building authority approves new laboratories.
Co-authors of the research paper Patterns and drivers of recent disturbances across the temperate forest biome (M. Svoboda and T. Hlásny) are members of EVA4.0 team.
In November, the Faculty of Forestry and Wood Sciences (FFWS) of the Czech University of Life Sciences (CULS) succeeded in one of the most important national competitions to support excellent research. In this call, we took 5th place with our EVA 4.0 project among other 130 competing project applications.
A new project website was launched. The website will be gradually updated with further information and updates.
