PE&RC Afternoon event 2020 (online)
Wednesday 18 November 2020 (14.00 - 17.30h)
As the current Covid-19 situation is not improving and stricter measures that have been launched, we have decided that this year’s edition of the PE&RC day will be cancelled. To keep the true spirit of this activity and biodiversity related lectures held in an iconic venue as Naturalis, we decided to move it to 2021. But we will organize an alternative event, the so called online PE&RC Afternoon event, in which the Collaboration call and Picture awards will have a prominent role!
PE&RC Day 2020
Wednesday 18 November 2020
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.
Workshop - An Introduction to LaTeX (online course)
Friday 22 June 2020 (12:00 - 14:00h)
