We are happy to share this map with you showing an overview of the data already collected within our MIREN Trail Survey.
We are now calling on all mountain enthusiasts from the southern hemisphere to join us and look out for plant invaders along mountain trails during the coming summer.
All details on how to join here.
Also check out our recent blogpost on this on lembrechtsjonas.wordpress.com.
MIREN supports the launch of SoilTemp, an attempt at building a global database and maps of soil temperature and climate. Intrigued? Get in touch with jonas.lembrechts [at] uantwerpen.be, or read more about it here!
3000 data points, 13 different countries; and summer only just started! The MIREN Trail Survey is truly gathering speed. Find here a story fresh from the field about how it works. Interested to join? Find all information here!
GMBA is carrying out a first coarse assessment of the state of, trends in, and relations between biodiversity, ecosystem services, human wellbeing, and direct drivers in the world’s mountains. They herewith invite you to contribute to this assessment by completing their survey:
It should take you roughly 40 minutes to provide them with first-hand knowledge of immense value. They very much look forward to receiving your mountain assessment by May 31 2018 and thank you for your contribution.
A recent MIREN-paper in Global Change Biology reviews the lags in species distribution responses to climate change.
Check out this blogpost on Jonas Lembrechts’ blog about the paper! The post also appeared on the website of the MRI.
