Pyrolife course PhD course Understanding fire in the landscape: biophysical aspects
Monday 25 January - Friday 5 February 2021
Integrated fire management includes social, economic, cultural and ecological values in each step of the management cycle (prevention, preparedness, response, mitigation and recovery), and therefore requires integrated and interdisciplinary training of our new leaders in fire. To provide this integrated training, PyroLife is organizing four PhD courses: three on the understanding of fire: 1) climate, risks and impact; 2) human dimensions and planning aspects; and 3) science-policy interaction. These three courses will be followed by a fourth course: 4) integrated fire management, where the way forward towards building and implementing an integrated fire management is discussed and developed. Here we announce the first course of this four PhD course series, focusing on the biophysical aspects of fire in the landscape.

PE&RC Day 2021
Wednesday 6 October 2021
In this year’s edition of the PE&RC day, we will take you on a journey back in time to explore how past species, populations, communities, and whole ecosystems responded to and recovered from large scale change and or recover from previous mass extinction events. How did the extinction elapse? What were the implications to species networks during previous biodiversity decline? What were the responses of species drivers of recovery and speciation? Touching on different ecosystems found around the globe, we will explore these insights gained from the past which serve as an essential repository of knowledge that we can consult to help save our remaining natural heritage.
