Thre is popular extract of a cartographical EEBIO-model ‘Polar Bear’ that was produced by the BioModel group in 2006, but published in 2008 – more details.
The Crimea Protected Areas 5th Conference on Theory, Practices and Prospective of Protected-Areas-Management in the Black Sea Region will take place on October 22-23, 2009, in Simpheropol (Ukraine) – more details (Rus).
The representative delegation of PCI Geomatics – the world’s leading developer of hardware/software systems for geo-imaging solutions, visited ULRMC today. Students of the National University of Life and Environmental Sciences of Ukraine (Ecology and Biotechologies Department) joined the meeting.
April 8-9, 2009: The National Conference-2009 for Young Scientists took place in central office of the Schmalhausen Institute of Zoology NASU (Kyiv). Participants demostrated 61 scientific reports on fauna investigation and conservation, taxonomy, ecology, animal morphology, paleontology, zoogeography. BioModel Team has presented to the conference some previous results of SDM – species (mammals) destribution modelling were produced in accordance with GLOBIO methodology – here. (See other BioModel examples using site-map).
There is a supportive data for students of National University of Biological Resources and Life Sciences (Kyiv) on application of LCCD for purposes of a local model plot research i.e LCCD Zoom In – Near Velyka Sneetynka (Kyiv Oblast) – map. The area is located near Velyka Sneetynka village in Kyiv Oblast (Ukraine). Respective algorithm has been described by us in the monograph ‘Agrobiodiversity of Ukraine…’ (Ukr), see Book #1 – p.15-31, and Book #2 – p.165-194. NB: table 2 – page 188, and the picture – page 590 of the Book #2, and to the text, which narrate about LCCD-index importance due to its good potential to be converted then to numbers of plant or animal species directly. For the map we used LCCD-shape-file of GIS ‘Agrobio’, and settlements-shape-file of digital map 1:500000, and that was based on ESRI software (ArcMap 9.3). Students have to compare then LCCD and MSA indices using previous published results and information about its correlation. (For more details use BioModel searach window above, or page 63 and Picture #21 of our ‘Landscape Ecology…’ (2008) as well as the moddelling leaflet (A3).
There is supportive data for students of National University of Biological Resources and Life Sciences (Kyiv) i.e Active Ag Zoom In – Near Velyka Sneetynka (Kyiv Oblast, Ukraine) – map. The result is based on Terra MODIS (2002), and which is an extract of GIS_Agrobio. Respective algorithm has been described by us in the monograph ‘Agrobiodiversity of Ukraine…’ (Ukr), see Book #1 – p.15-31. For the map we used ‘ag_total_Uk’ shape-file of GIS ‘Agrobio’, and settlements-shape-file of digital map 1:500000, and that was based on ESRI software (ArcMap 9.3).
April 3, 2009. The representatives delegation of DigitalGlobe – the world’s leading provider of high resolution commercial imagery and the only company operating a constellation of sub-meter commercial imaging satellites, visited ULRMC last week.
The Secretariats of the African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbird Agreement (AEWA) and the Convention on Migratory Species (CMS) have announced the countdown for World Migratory Bird Day 2009. The two-day awareness-raising campaign will take place globally from 9-10 May 2009. Its central theme will be “Barriers to Migration,” highlighting the threat posed by man-made obstacles to birds during their annual migration – more details.
April 2, 2009: the representatives delegation of Euromap (Euromap Satellitendaten-Vertriebsgesellschaft mbH), which is the only actor in Europe to successfully receive, archive and market Indian Earth observation satellite data, visited ULRMC.
