Summer school of land use history

Summer school of land use history

17.-20. September 2018, Karula NP & Tartu

Language: In English

Course code: PK.1675                               Credits: 2 ECTS

The modern landscape and habitats originate from the past. Without information about their evolution throughout history, it is complicated to make prognoses for the future and plan the appropriate management. The aim of the land use history summer school is to provide knowledge about the land use history of rural areas and introduce research methods relevant to the topic. Soil properties have always played important role in development of land use, therefore the soil morphological characteristics are a valuable information source for land use history research. Several questions could be asked: can we detect traces of grazing or ploughing in the soils? What traces have left the earlier forest succession? What information of former land use can be obtained from soil charcoal? All abovenamed themes and many other aspects of land use history will be examined in summer school. The fieldworks will be carried out during three days and one day will be dedicated to studying the collected samples in the laboratory.

The organizers welcome participants from the Estonian University of Life Sciences (doctoral students of Environmental Sciences and Applied Biology, Forestry, Agricultural Sciences). Doctoral students from other universities in the fields of ecology, botany, geology, landscape ecology, environmental sciences and archelogy, who’s research themes are associated with land use history are also welcomed to take part in the summer school.

As part of the application, a motivation letter is needed (about 300 words). Students from other universities will have to present their work during the summer school and a short abstract (250 words) of the presentation needs to be added to the registration form.

The deadline for application is May 15th 2018.
