The International Laboratory of Landscape Ecology in the period from October 27 to December 15 holds a series of seminars on the topic "Current approaches and methods in landscape and environmental research"
On October 27, 2022, the first seminar "Energy and mass transfer of arid ecosystems - research experience at the Forest Yatir biostation in Israel" was held.
The seminar was attended by Fyodor Tatarinov, academic supervisor of the laboratory, consultant of the Dan Yakir Research Group of the H. Weizmann Research Institute (Israel) with a report on the organization of measurements of biophysical parameters of the functioning of the Yatir pine forest (located in the northern part of the Negev Desert) – the unique forest geosystem. In his report, Fedor touched upon the principles of organizing observations of heat, moisture and carbon dioxide flows based on the method of turbulent pulsations and highlighted the main areas of research carried out at the biostation: measurements of pasoka flows in trees, studies of seasonal fluctuations in soil moisture, measurements of chlorophyll fluorescence induced by the sun (SIF) and others.
The seminar was held in a mixed format.
