XX CONGRESSO DA ASSOCIAÇÃO IBÉRICA DE LIMNOLOGIA (AIL) -2020
III CONGRESSO IBEROAMERICANO DE LIMNOLOGIA (CIL-2020)

LIMNOLOGIA NUM MUNDO EM TRANSFORMAÇÃO

Murcia (Espanha) – Outubro-Novembro 2020

CONGRESSO VIRTUAL

Entre 26 e 29 outubro de 2020, e honrando o lema do congreso “ Limnologia num mundo em transformação”  celebraremos de forma virtual a partir de Múrcia (sudeste da Espanha) o XX Congresso da Associação Ibérica de Limnologia (AIL-2020). Esta é a primeira vez que a frutífera coordenação entre a Associação Ibérica de Limnologia e as Associações Ibero-Americanas de Limnologia resulta na celebração de um evento científico conjunto na Península Ibérica. Nesse sentido, este será também  o III Congresso Ibero-Americano de Limnologia (CIL-2020). Este evento oferecerá, embora de maneira virtual, a valiosa oportunidade para a troca de conhecimentos e experiências entre os limnólogos ibéricos e ibero-americanos.

Um dos principais objectivos deste Congresso é discutir os novos conhecimentos científicos que serão úteis para melhorar a gestão e a conservação dos ecossistemas aquáticos continentais (de lagos a deltas e estuários, passando por rios e zonas húmidas). Esta informação será discutida num cenário de alterações globais e considerando novos modelos de cooperação homem-natureza. Sob o slogan “Limnologia num mundo em mudança”, o congresso tem como objetivo discutir as principais questões para gerir estes ecossistemas que, apesar de serem de grande importância para os seres humanos, estão sujeitos a pressões e impactos a intensos e crescentes.

O sudeste ibérico é uma das regiões mais áridas da Europa. Os ecossistemas aquáticos continentais nesta área adquirem uma grande importância pela sua singularidade à escala europeia e pelo interesse conservacionista associado. Em ambientes áridos, aparece uma grande variedade de ecossistemas aquáticos que abrigam uma extraordinária biodiversidade. O funcionamento destes ecossistemas é determinado por condições biofísicas extremas, especialmente na interface terra-água. Apesar de seu interesse para conservação, os ecossistemas aquáticos desta região estão altamente ameaçados pelo alto grau de alteração antrópica e alterações globais.

Convidamos todos a participar neste evento único para partilhar experiências, coordenar trabalhos e avançar o conhecimento sobre ecologia aquática, contribuindo para um modelo mais sustentável e de apoio à gestão de ecossistemas aquáticos continentais. Nesse sentido, consideramos que o envolvimento de gestores e técnicos de recursos hídricos é essencial como a ponte entre o conhecimento científico e a sociedade. Por esta razão, o nosso convite é estendido de maneira especial a este colectivo.

Oradores Convidados

Especialistas de todo o mundo.

Nancy B. Grimm

Scientist

Country: U.S.A. - School of Life Sciences. Virginia M. Ullman Professor of Ecology; Senior Sustainability Scientist Faculty, TEMPE Campus.

Nancy B. Grimm is an ecosystem ecologist and interdisciplinary sustainability scientist who studies interactions of climate change, human activities, resilience, and biogeochemical processes in urban and stream ecosystems.

From 1997-2016 Grimm directed the Central Arizona–Phoenix LTER (CAP LTER), a pioneering interdisciplinary study of a complex metropolitan region whose conceptual models of social-ecological-technological systems expanded ecology.

She now co-directs the Urban Resilience to Extremes Sustainability Research Network (URExSRN) and works with cities to co-produce visions of resilient and sustainable futures. Grimm is a Member of the US National Academy of Sciences, Past President of the Ecological Society of America (ESA) and the Society for Freshwater Science (SFS), and a Fellow of American Association for the Advancement of Science, ESA, SFS, and the American Geophysical Union.

She is an editor for Earth’s Future, an editorial advisor for Ecohydrology and the Journal of Urban Ecology, and associate editor for Sustainability and Frontiers in the Built Environment: Urban Science.

She is the Virginia M. Ullman Professor of Ecology in the School of Life Sciences and Senior Sustainability Scientist in the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability at Arizona State University.

Cayetano Gutiérrez Cánovas

Researcher

Country: Spain. Departament de Biologia Evolutiva, Ecologia i Ciències Ambientals. Universitat de Barcelona.

Scientific trajectory: I developed my PhD in Ecology at University of Murcia (2014), where I studied how ecosystems respond to natural and anthropogenic stressors using different approaches. In my first postdoctoral position (Cardiff University, 2015-17) quantifying multiple-stressor effects in European rivers and identifying which river biodiversity aspects best predict ecosystem service delivery in UK upland rivers.

Later, I worked at University of Barcelona the mechanisms explaining river metacommunities at rivers in response to predictable drought.

Currently, I work as a postdoc at University of Minho exploring how climate change impact on river food webs and how this translates into changes in ecosystem multifunctionality.

During these years, I published 23 papers in SCI-journals, and published/edited ~200 outreach posts at my co-managed blog and other media.

Research lines: In my research, I explore the effects of multiple global change pressures on biodiversity and multiple ecosystem functions and services, using a variety of quantitative approaches. Combining taxonomic and trait-based approaches, my studies aim at identifying which ecological mechanisms link multiple-stressors, biodiversity and ecosystem multifunctionality.

My studies cover different ecosystems and organisms (river invertebrates and fishes, coastal plants, vertebrate scavengers) to look for general responses to global change.

Mariana Meerhoff

PhD. Professor

Country: Uruguay. Universidad de la República/ Centro Universitario Regional Este - UDeLaR / Departamento de Ecología y Gestión Ambiental

PhD. Professor at the Ecology and Environmental Department of Universidad de la República, Uruguay.

Her research focuses particularly on the potential effects of climate warming and land use changes on community structure and trophic dynamics, as well as ecosystem processes, of shallow lakes, streams and reservoirs. Her work involves laboratory and field experiments, field studies and space for time substitution studies.

She has published around 60 papers and several book chapters and edited books. She is Associate Editor of the journals Freshwater Biology, Hydrobiologia, Perspectives in Ecology and Conservation, and Ecología Austral. Collaborates with research groups in Argentina, Brazil, USA, Spain, Denmark, The Netherlands, Turkey.

Raquel Mendonça

Researcher

Country: Brazil. - Department of Ecology. Uppsala University. Researcher at the Federal University of Juiz de Fora, in Brazil, where she is a co-leader of the Aquatic Ecology group.

She got a PhD in Ecology from the University of Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil, in 2012. Her thesis was about carbon emission and sequestration in hydroelectric reservoirs and it was partly developed at Wageningen University in The Netherlands.

Raquel was a post-doc at the Radboud University of Nijmegen, in The Netherlands, where she studied the sinergic effects of warming and eutrophication on the carbon balance of shallow lakes.

At Uppsala University, in Sweden, she worked in an ERC-granted project that aimed to improve the knowledge about the carbon dynamics of tropical reservoirs.

Raquel is interested on the various aspects of the aquatic biogeochemistry. She is part of a leading group on CO2 and CH4 emissions from reservoirs and she has published some pioneer studies on the carbon sequestration by inland waters.

Dr Luisa Orsini

Senior Lecturer/Associate Professor

Country: Italy. Senior Lecturer/Associate Professor in Biosystems and Environmental Change at the University of Birmingham (UoB), and a time traveller.

She studies the processes and mechanisms of evolutionary response to climate and other environmental factors with relevance to climate – pollution, anthropogenic land-use. To reconstruct long-term dynamics she applies high throughput technologies to sedimentary archives of inland waters, which have the unique advantage of preserving biological and environmental signals temporally.

Moreover, she applies high throughput technologies to ‘resurrected’ specimens of the keystone species Daphnia magna (waterflea) to identify the molecular mechanisms that enable evolutionary changes through time and space.

Dr Orsini strongly believes in bridging the science/policy divide. To this end, she works on biotechnology solutions for the removal of pharmaceuticals, pesticides and other suspended materials from wastewater and surface water.

Nicolás Valiente Parra

Researcher

Country: Spain. Postdoctoral Fellow. Department of Biosciences, University of Oslo (Norway).

He got a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Castilla-La Mancha (Spain) in 2018. His thesis, partially developed at the University of Vienna (Austria), encompassed a multidisciplinary approach to assess the natural attenuation of agricultural pollutants (mainly nitrate) in the Pétrola Lake, one of the most representative saline wetlands in the Castilla-La Mancha region (central Iberian Peninsula).

This study was awarded by the Iberian Association of Limnology in 2020.

Currently, he works in the Section for Aquatic Biology and Toxicology, as part of the recently created Center for Biogeochemistry in the Anthropocene, at the University of Oslo. He is involved in a BiodivERsA project focused on filling gaps in Arctic freshwater biodiversity knowledge, where he combines tools like multi-OMICS or stable isotopes to link diversity (taxonomic and functional) with biogeochemical responses.

Nicolas is especially interested in extreme environments including polar regions (Svalbard, Finse, Finnmark) or hypersaline ecosystems, focused on the high relevance of lakes and ponds in such ecosystems for the global carbon and nitrogen cycles.
