Simbiosys - Integrating Biodiversity Research, Policy and Practice
Date: June 28th 2012
Location: Swift Theatre, Arts Block, Trinity College Dublin
Final Conference of the SIMBIOSYS Project
This conference will examine sectoral impacts on biodiversity and ecosystem services, including aquaculture and wind farms; bioenergy crops and road development; and policy implications.
Biodiversity and associated ecosystem services are fundamental to humanity but are threatened by human activity in a range of sectors. This project will quantify impacts of key sectoral activities in Ireland (in particular: cultivation of bioenergy crops, road landscaping and aquaculture) on genetic, species and landscape biodiversity and the ecosystem services they provide, including pollination, biological pest control, carbon sequestration and resistance to alien species invasion. In addition, we will test methods for mitigating impacts, carry out indepth strategic reviews in order to inform national policy decisions, and make recommendations for future strategic research and management.
