Every last Wednesday of the month, as part of the EU-H2020 MOOD communication and dissemination activities, OpenGeoHub hosts a series of science webinars inviting two leading experts to share their research work on disease surveillance and modelling in data science, the impact of global warming on disease outbreaks, and the building of one-health systems across Europe and the world. With the MOOD science webinars, we aim at bringing the leading scientists and professionals in the field to discuss important recent discoveries and discuss implications of their work.
We have only a few decades to reverse the negative trends and start valuing biodiversity realistically. i.e. using financial damages and risks also affecting the next generations. But how to measure biodiversity and what is our global biodiversity debt? How much can we learn from the further and closer past? Two biodiversity scientists from the University of Amsterdam and Leiden join us to discuss their discoveries with modelling species dynamics through time using historic data and biogeography.
