eLTER SPF Webinar: WAILS concept (Part I)

To introduce the WAILS concept - the Whole Systems Approach to In-Situ Research on Life-supporting Systems - we are organising a two-part SPF webinar series, with WAILS concept (part I) taking place on 9 October 2024 at 13:00 CET.  

WAILS combines research on horizontal interactions between social systems and their environments with research in macrosystem ecology with its vertical interactions and scaling. The presentations during this webinar will first introduce and explain eLTER's WAILS concept, followed by a case study of how it can be translated into biodiversity research.
