Upcoming courses organized by FoSW.

Ecological stability in times of rapid environmental change, 3 credits

15 – 19 October, 2018, plus one week preparation before course

During the course we will guide course participants through the theoretical concepts and dimensions of stability across different spatial and time scales to aid discussions and hypothesis development to be able prepare you to develop your own research with the future aim to integrate results with policies and actions.

Nitrogen cycling in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems (Winter 2018/2019)

Course inquiry for winter 2018/2019:

Are you interested in a PhD course on Nitrogen cycling in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems (tentative course title)? The research school Focus on Soils & Water is planning to organize such a course during winter 2018/2019 and would like to know whether you are interested in participating. If so, please get in touch with Anke.Herrmann@slu.se

Carbon cycling: from molecular to global processes (Spring 2019)

Course inquiry for Spring 2019:

Focus on Soils & Water is planning to organize a course on Carbon cycling: from molecular to global processes (course organizers: Björn Lindahl, José Ledesma). The course will consist of weekly literature meetings during late April/May and a 1-week workshop (preliminary date 28th of May until 1st of June 2018). The course plan is currently under revision but we would like to know who is potentially interested in such a course.

If you are interested and/or have questions regarding the course, please contact Björn Lindahl: Bjorn.Lindahl@slu.se
