23 to 26 November 2016
university of aveiro
The conference will be held from 24 to 26 November 2016, and includes two days of technical visits and one day of seminar for scientists to present their works and discuss their ideas on different topics related to post-fire land management and also the effects of post-fire on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems.
On November 23, a specific seminar is planned for young researchers to present their work and discuss their ideas. The activities planned for this day will be, however, dependent on a minimum number of registered participants (20).
On November 24 there will be a technical visit to some of the experimental areas of the EU RECARE, project in Miranda do Corvo (Coimbra District). After a fire on August 2015, erosion plots were installed on burned eucalypt plantations to study the effects of post-fire erosion mitigation techniques, namely mulching and logging, on soils, vegetation, soil hydrological and erosion processes and water quality of downstream aquatic systems.
On November 25 there will be a seminar for presenting as well to debate and discuss scientific works on different topics related to post-fire land management. In this seminar their will be three or four lectures by invited keynote speakers:
• Doctor José Antonio Vega, Centro de Investigación Forestal de Lourizán, Consellería do Medio Rural e do Mar, Xunta de Galicia
• Prof. Doctor V. Ramon Vallejo do Departamento de Biologia Vegetal, Universidade de Barcelona
• Doctor Jesús San-Miguel-Ayanz, Forest Information System for Europe, Unit Forest Resources and Climate, Institute for Environment and Sustainability, Joint Research Centre (to be confirmed)
• Eng. João Pinho, Vice-Presidente do Conselho Diretivo do Instituto da Conservação da Natureza e das Florestas, Lisboa
On November 26 there will be a technical visit to the Caramulo Mountains to show some of the erosion mitigation measures, i.e. wood barriers and breaking of soil water repellent layer, implemented by the forest services of the Tondela Municipality after the summer fires of 2013.
