Europe's Meadows and Mountain Steams

Human use of biodiversity continually degrades habitats and threatens ecosystems. Join us to learn how Earthwatch teams are developing appropriate habitat management plans for the biodiversity-rich hay meadows in Spain, and implementing restoration techniques for endangered habitats such as the acid-rain damaged forests and headwaters of Bohemia.

 

Over the past thirteen years Earthwatch teams have been monitoring the slow and complicated recovery of headwater catchments and lakes from the devastating effects of acid rain and commercial forestry practices.

 

By 1989 more than two-thirds of the forested headwaters in the Czech Republic had experienced forest die-back, soil erosion, diminishing water quality and the disappearance of native fish species.

 

Zuzana Horicka (Charles University, Prague) will describe her work with Dr. Josef Krecek (winner of Earthwatches's 2002 Principal Investigator of the Year award) to assess the environmental impacts of watershed rehabilitation.

 

 

There is no charge for admission to the lectures, although admission is by ticket only. Please book on info@earthwatch.org.uk
