Quelle: BAM

Seit 1871 gewährleistet die BAM Sicherheit in Technik und Chemie und schafft so Vertrauen in Innovationen und Zukunftstechnologien. Mit unserer Arbeit tragen wir dazu bei, den Wirtschaftsstandort Deutschland zu stärken und auf gesellschaftliche Herausforderungen wie die Energiewende oder den Klimawandel zu antworten.

Im Rahmen der Vortragsreihe „Wissenschaft mit Wirkung“ hat die BAM führende Köpfe aus der Wissenschaft eingeladen, um die Entwicklungen der BAM in den Themenfeldern und die Wirkung von Wissenschaft für die Gesellschaft gemeinsam zu beleuchten. Sie sind herzlich zur Teilnahme an den virtuellen Vorträgen eingeladen.

Summaryto follow shortly
LanguageMicrobial communities play a key role in the evolution and dynamics of the entire Earth system. But we seem to lag behind other research communities when it comes to producing regionally and globally integrated information of pressing scientific and societal relevance, such as loss of species and habitats, and feedback mechanisms to anthropogenic impacts. Methods are needed that enable us to quantify large-scale patterns, rates, and feedback mechanisms associated with microbially-mediated ecosystem services, addressing questions such as: How is ocean productivity changing? How does warming affect microbial feedback in the carbon and nitrogen budget? Has the exponential increase in anthropogenic pollution, such as plastic waste, altered the global microbiome? This presentation discusses examples of such impact studies, and what is needed to upscale them in an integrated approach, to define large-scale mechanisms, and the “good” or “bad” environmental status. A key question is how we can include our knowledge on microbial community dynamics into system solutions for a sustainable future.

This lecture ist part of the LECTURE SERIES Microbes and Environmental Chemistry 14.10. - 18.11.2021. Join us for a virtual trip around the world: on six Thursdays from 14 October to 18 November, always from 4 to 6pm. Six renowned international scientists will share their ground-breaking observations of processes on this planet. The spotlight is on interactions of living organisms and landscapes /materials as mediators of global change in all regions of the Earth.
