The International Tree Mortality Network, an initiative of the IUFRO
task force on monitoring trends and patterns in global tree mortality,
continues the online seminar series join on *February 15, 4 pm CET*, with:
*Dr. Ana Bastos*
*Title: **Climate variability, extremes, and attribution of high-impact
ecological events: challenges and ways forward*
_Abstract:_ Climate and weather extremes impact tree functioning
directly and can further trigger forest disturbances, thus affecting
forest functioning and dynamics over periods much longer than the
extreme per-se. With increased frequency or intensity of extreme events
projected in the coming decades, extreme events might cluster in periods
shorter than recovery times, thereby amplifying impacts and potentially
inducing degradation and mortality trajectories. Understanding the links
between atmospheric variability controlling extreme event occurrence and
downstream impacts on forests is, therefore, crucial to: (i) separate
trends in disturbance/mortality events due to natural vs.
anthropogenically forced climate variability, (ii) improve process
understanding about the drivers of high-impact ecological events and
(iii) increase the robustness of future projections of forest dynamics.
_Bio:_ Ana Bastos is the Lead of the Climate-ecosystem-disturbance
interactions group of the Max Planck Institute of Biogeochemistry. She
specialises in climate-ecosystem interactions with an emphasis on the
inter-annual to long-term variability in the global carbon-cycle.

Teagasc are recruiting, for an indicative duration of 45 months, a post-doctoral researcher to be based at their Ashtown Research Centre in Dublin. The post-doctoral researcher will carry out research on ContinuFor, which is a new project funded by the Irish Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM). ContinuFor is a multi-discipline research project led by Prof. Áine Ní Dhubhaín from UCD with Teagasc and NUI Maynooth as project partners. The project aims to increase the knowledge base on continuous cover forestry (CCF) in Ireland. The post-doctoral researcher at Teagasc will collaborate with project partners to investigate suitable silvicultural approaches to transformation to CCF, and determine the consequences of transformation for timber production (quality and quantity), biodiversity, resilience and carbon sequestration. The focus of the researcher will be to leverage two existing long-term transformation research sites that have been active since 2010, collect field-data from these sites, and establish another replicate site. Applicants should have experience in fieldwork, forest mensuration, data analysis, report writing and dissemination. The ideal candidate should have experience working in forestry research and be familiar with CCF. The role will involve working closely with the wider project team and industry, so good organisational skills, project management and a demonstrated capacity to deliver on objectives and research tasks and team work are essential. An ability to communicate the research findings to relevant stakeholders and internal and external groups is an essential part of the role.
