FowiTa 2018 - Session "Der Einfluss von Störungen auf den P Kreislauf von Waldökosystemen"

 FOWITA

Aktuelle Arbeiten zeigen, dass Waldökosysteme in gemäßigtem Klima nur wenig P verlieren. Störungen des ökologischen Gleichgewichtes können jedoch zu P Verlusten oder einer Midnerung der P-Verfügbarkeit in Wäldern führen. Zu solchen Störungen gehören "natürliche Ereignisse", wie Windwurf oder Schneebruch, menschlich induzierte Ereignisse wie zunehmende Trockenheit, ansteigende Temperaturen oder N-Einträge sowie nutzungsbedingte Eingriffe (P-Export mit der Ernte, Bodenverdichtung, Kahlschlag, Veränderung der Baumartenverteilung, Kalkung). Im Rahmen der Session "Der Einfluss von Störungen auf den P Kreislauf von Waldökosystemen" soll sikutiert werdene welche Konsequenzen solche Störungen für die P-Versorgung von Waldökosystemen haben, welche Prozesse zu Regeneration des gestörten P-Kreislaufs beitragen und welche Waldökosysteme besonders sensitiv auf derartige Störungen reagieren. Neben dem Erfahrungsaustausch soll auch diskutiert werden, welche abgeleiteten Maßnahmen zum P-nachhaltigen Management von Wäldern beitragen können.

Die FowiTa 2018 findet vom 24.-27. September 2018 in Göttingen statt.

Beiträge zu dieser oder einer anderen Session können bis zum 21. Mai 2018 eingereicht werden.

Research into organic phosphorus is key to ensure food security and environmental sustainability

 PaS

A non-renewable resource, phosphorus (P) is essential for crop and food production. However, due to inefficient use and limited global reserves, inorganic P fertilisers will become less economically viable and there are concerns about future supplies and the environmental consequences of mismanagement. Without action, this situation could undermine agricultural productivity and sustainability.

A large proportion of P is already present in soils in organic forms, which are fundamental for biological and ecosystems functions in the terrestrial environment, as well as cell function, growth and reproduction.

During an Organic P workshop held in the Lake District in September 2016 a group of 102 scientist from 23 countries  - including 10 members of SPP 1685 - agree, that "organic P research has a critical role to play in tackling a number of important global challenges and there are key contributions to be made toward understanding biogeochemical cycles, dynamics and function of natural ecosystems and the management of agricultural systems".

Following the mmetin in the Lake District the paper Organic phosphorus in the terrestrial environment: a perspective on the state of the art and future priorities is published in Plant and Soil. The article is part of a Special Issue of papers associated with the Organic P workshop.

 OP2016

Following on from the successful meeting held in Panama in 2013, the Organic Phosphorus workshop 2016 took place 5th - 9th September 2016 in the Lake District, England. The workshop brought together soil, water, plant and environmental scientists to study and share ideas and innovation on the subject of “Organic Phosphorus in the Environment: Solutions for Phosphorus Security”. The SPP 1685 was represented by several members presenting their work.

Most tals are now available on the YouTube Channel 'OP2016'.

Special Issue - Plant and Soil: Phosphorus in Soils and Plants - Facing  Phosphorus  Scarcity

 Plant and Soil

Phosphorus is a fundamental nutrient for primary productivity of ecosystems and agricultural production, but its misuse impacts agricultural sustainability and has important environmental consequences. Access to global reserves of phosphate rock is politically sensitive and economically challenging. Phosphorus accumulates in agricultural soils, representing a financial loss to farmers and increasing the risk of loss to water. The challenges facing phosphorus sustainability are varied, but many solutions are to be found in the plant–soil system.

Special Issue Plant and Soil.

6th Symposium on Phosphorus in Soils and Plants - PSP6


PSP6_P

 

September 10-13, 2018 
KU Leuven (Belgium)

 The symposium will be the sixth edition of a long standing and successful series starting in Beijing in 2000 and including subsequent editions in Perth (2003), Uberlandia (2006), Beijing (2010) and Montpellier (2014).

Among the topics that will be dealt with are: phosphorus scarcity, which can limit crop production in many agronomical ecosystems, and management of excess phosphorus, which gives rise to probelms of eutrophicatioj mostly in aquatic ecosystems. The scope of the topics will range from fundamental insights of phosphorus biogeochemical cycles to applications such as crop breeding, fertilizer development, soil management and performance of environmental impact assessments. The conference also aims to attract a large number of scientists from developing countries where phosphorus scarcity is a major issue.

Registration will be open from January 15, 2018, but feel free to already visit our website: http://www.psp6symposium.com
 

Abstract submisson deadline: 1 May, 2018
