Biodiversity: supporting vital ecosystems
The focus of this issue of Research*EU results magazine is therefore ‘Biodiversity: supporting vital ecosystems’. In this edition we interview Dr Elke Schüttler of the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research in Germany, whose research on finding common ground between an endangered species, the kodkod cat of Chile, and its human neighbours could — if successful — be a very practical response to some of the dilemmas concerning sustainability and biodiversity.
The ‘environment and society’ section continues with other examples of biodiversity-related research. These ‘specials’ start with ‘Scientists put spotlight on marine biodiversity in Europe’.
The ‘biology and medicine’ section opens with an article entitled ‘Giving stroke patients new reason for hope’, while the feature article in the ‘energy and transport’ section hints at how to ‘Reduce energy consumption by 30 % through ICT’. The ‘IT and telecommunications’ section begins with the Star-Trek-inspired ‘Beam me to my meeting!’.
Finally, the ‘industrial technologies’ section starts with ‘Employing virtual reality technology to revolutionise manual work’. The issue ends, as usual, with a list of events and upcoming conferences.
