Brathay Exploration Group - are currently recruiting for our 2014 expeditions and one in particular - Exploring Glaciers. The expedition is set on and around the Jostedal Icecap, Norway and involves a 5 day glaciers skills training course, where members learn to use ice axes and crampons, do crevasse rescues, and spend 2 days walking up a glacier and staying at it top before walking back down. This training is then followed by a week exploring the Josteldalen National Park whilst developing their mountaineering skills, learning how the landscape and the glaciers within it are changing as a result of climate change.
The expedition is run in conjunction with the Field Studies Council and the Norwegian Glacier Museum. Members of this expedition will then be able to progress on to our Glaciers and Climate Change expedition in 2015, which surveys Tunsbergdalsbreen, the largest outlet glacier of the Jostel Icecap, to determine its response to current climate change. Our 2015 Greenland expedition which will carry out glaciological monitoring (still in development) may also be of interest.

four PhD positions in the framework of the project entitled 'FORBIO Climate - Adaptation potential of biodiverse forests in the face of climate change'.
Climate change is expected to have a large impact on the distribution, composition and functioning of forest ecosystems worldwide due to
the limited migration and adaptation potential of trees. Creating resistant and resilient forests is thus a key challenge for forest
management. It has been suggested recently that epigenetic mechanisms may increase the capacity of trees to survive in a changing
environment, but the extent and importance of these mechanisms in seedlings and saplings are still unknown. Research has also shown
that more biodiverse ecosystems are better buffered against disturbances, e.g. because of complementary resource use and lower
susceptibility to pest and pathogen attacks. Yet, these studies were predominantly performed in grasslands. More insight into the adaptive
capacity of trees – in their consecutive life stages (from seedling to adult) - and forests to climate change is thus badly needed.
FORBIO Climate wants to scrutinize the adaptive capacity of tree species and predict the future performance of tree species in Belgium
under different scenarios of climate change. The project will focus on oak (Quercus robur/petraea) and beech (Fagus sylvatica), two tree
species with high ecological and economic significance in Belgium (and Europe). FORBIO Climate will capitalize upon two unique research
infrastructures available in Belgium, i.e. the FORBIO experimental sites (see: http://forbio.biodiversity.be/) and the Observational
Biodiversity Platform, to test the following hypotheses: (1) epigenetic inheritance mechanisms can increase the adaptive capacity of trees
to climate change during the reproduction stage; (2) across subsequent tree development stages, tree performance in more biodiverse
forests is more resistant and resilient to climate change.
· We offer a Ph.D. scholarship for two years, that will be extended for two more years after a positive evaluation.
· Tentative starting date is 1 April 2014.
· Send your CV, summary of study grades, a motivation letter and the names of two referees by email before March 3, 2014 to
the principal investigators of the respective WPs / PhDs http://www.uclouvain.be/
