  • ZALF - Guest Lecture -Prof. Dr. Jörg Overmann, Leibniz Institute DSMZ

    14.04.2021, 11:00 Uhr - 14.04.2021, 13:00 Uhr

    Category: Guest lecture

    Bacterial diversity and its role in soil ecosystems

    Prof. Jörg Overmann
    Scientific Director of the Leibniz Institute DSMZ - German Culture Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures, Braunschweig

    Short abstract: Culture-independent studies have revealed that just 1 gram of soil may contain about 50,000 different bacterial species, representing the most diverse microbial communities on Earth. Estimates of the global bacterial diversity even exceed 1 billion species. By comparison, the number of bacterial species that are described and hence available for detailed physiological and biochemical characterization amounts to just 17,000. Microbes are the major drivers of biogeochemical transformations, hence their diversity, functions and interactions need to be resolved in order to arrive at a causal understanding of the soil ecosystem. This has now become possible with the advent of modern molecular, bioinformatics, and cultivation-based approaches.

  • International Workshop: Scenarios for legume protein in European agricultural systems

    01.10.2020, 08:30 Uhr - 02.10.2020, 15:30 Uhr

    Category: Workshop

    Diversification with grain legumes could reduce fertilizer and pesticide use and increase domestic plant protein production and consumption in Europe. Besides, legumes could improve the resilience of European farming systems to the socio-economic and climatic variability, enhance biodiversity and ecosystem services, and contribute to novel food systems.

    The workshop aims to develop a set of novel future scenarios for better-utilizing grain legumes with a focus on food systems in Europe by addressing the following questions:

    • What impact do change consumption patterns have on grain legume production?
    • How does climate change affect future protein supply?
    • How does global protein demand change resulting from continuous population growth?

    Based on the developed scenarios a scientific publication will be developed and all participants are invited to contribute.

  • PhD Day 2020

    10.09.2020, 09:30 Uhr - 10.09.2020, 18:00 Uhr

    Category: PHD-Day

    Join us during PhD Day 2020 on September 10th 2020!

    In its general research strategy, ZALF aims to answer a very important question: “How do we feed a growing world population without harming the climate, the environment and natural resources?”

    Yet, are the many PhD projects supervised at ZALF in line with this goal? What are current research gaps? And are there research topics not sufficiently represented in the strategy?

    We want to take this year’s PhD Day as an opportunity to reflect these questions in hands-on presentations, workshops and a final discussion.

    We will be happy to meet you there!

    In order to ensure the corona hygiene measures, PhD Day takes place exclusively virtually. If you are interested in participating, we kindly ask ZALF-external persons to pre-register at ecr-coord@zalf.de

    The Third Wave of AI: Closing the Gap between AI and the Domain Experts
    Prof. Dr. Kristian Kersting Head of the Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Group, TU Darmstadt

    Deep neural networks have shown excellent performances in many real-world applications such as plant phenotyping. Unfortunately, they generally do not know when they do know and may show "Clever Hans"-like behaviour — making use of confounding factors within datasets — to achieve high prediction rates. In this talk, propose to not "go down the full neural road." Instead I shall argue to use e.g. sum-product networks, a deep but tractable architecture for probability distributions. They "know when they duo not know" and even pave the way towards automating density estimation, making machine learning accessible to a broader audience of non-experts.

    Presenter: ​Dr. Katja Klumpp
    French National Institute for Agricultural Research | INRA Department of Forest, Grassland and Freshwater Ecology

    Title: Grazing management for soil organic matters

    There are still uncertainties on the magnitude of C sequestration poten-tial, and their use in climate initiatives (i.e. 4p1000). Average values of 0.2 to 0.7 tC ha-1yr-1 been cited, while soil inventories reported only 0.05 tC ha-1yr-1 (e.g. Soussana et al., 2010). These discrepancies can be attributed to differences in pedo-climatic conditions, intensity and type of management, but also to age and live-time of grasslands. To analyse in detail C sequestration potential of French grasslands, a national study “4p1000 France“ was conducted (see Pellerin et al., 2019) to identify promising C "storing" practices, to be adopted as mitigation option.

    ​Presenter: Dr. Miguel D. Mahecha
    Leader of the research group: Empirical Inference of the Earth System at the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry

    Titel: Towards a global multivariate understanding of climate extremes

    Abstract: Today we have the opportunity to analyze and understand the Earth system with a variety of in-situ and Earth Observations (EO). But before we can tap into the full potential of these data streams we need to overcome many practical hurdles. In this talk I will first discuss novel data-analytic approaches to explore multivariate dynamics in the Earth system. Then I will specifically discussion the question how climate extremes affect terrestrial ecosystems. We will present a global scale, multivariate view on climate extremes and discuss the potentials and limitations of our approach to disentangle the underlying ecological processes.

    Title: What does resilience mean in the CAP? A reflexive policy design perspective

    The resilience of Europe’s farming systems has become a major concern in current discussions about the future Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) of the European Union (EU). At the same time the policy design of the CAP has come under increased scrutiny, e.g. by two recent reports from the European Court of Auditors. This presentation combines the ‘new policy design’ perspective and reflexive policy analysis to develop a critical assessment of the current CAP and of pro-posals for its development post-2020

  • Final Conference of the BMBF funding program "Innovation Groups for Sustainable Land Management": Impulses from science and practice for future landscapes

    14.02.2019, 13:00 Uhr - 15.02.2019, 13:00 Uhr

    Category: Conference/symposium

    The societal demand for land remains high and is expected to increase further in the future. Especially in metropolitan regions and their surrounding areas, strategies are needed to deal with the increasing pressure of competition for land. Landscape change is also progressing in rural areas. Thus, new opportunities are needed which link public services and value creation without losing precious, culturally influenced landscapes.​

    The final conference of the BMBF funding program "Innovation Groups for Sustainable Land Management" will present results of five years research on innovative approaches to sustainable land use.
