We are very glad to have assisted the European Ecosystem Services Conferences held last week at the University of Antwerp in Belgium. Our team leader, Vera Hausner led the only session on alpine and arctic ecosystems entitled “Global changes in local ecosystem services in Alpine and Arctic regions in Europe”. Speakers presented projects from a variety of countries, such as Italy, Norway, Austria and Russia among others. Sigrid Engen gave a talk on “What factors are important in determining the distribution of ecosystem values in Norwegian Alpine areas?”. Interesting discussions followed the talks. It is so nice to share experiences working on such remote environments!
Lorena Munoz won the 2nd prize for best poster presentation. She competed with 80 participants! Team CultEs is so proud!”
