Decisions for third sDiv call
Following our third sDiv call, we received many proposals of very high scientific quality. After discussion of the internal reviews, the sDiv Committee decided to fund nine international workshops and two individual Postdoc projects:
"Quantifying biodiversity change through time (sChange)”
"Towards understanding the causes and consequences of epigenetic diversity (sEpiDiv)”
"Scaling shrub expansion from site to biome Manuscript finalization working group" (sTUNDRA II)"
"Global Changes in Marine Plankton Diversity and Productivity (sMarD)"
"Community Assembly and the Functioning of Ecosystems in Open Systems (sCAFE)"
"Synthesis on Pollen Limitation and Terrestrial biodiversity (sPlat)"
"Linking ecological stoichiometry with environment‐diversity‐productivity relationships in grasslands (sToichNutNet)"
"Expanding Neo-Chessonian coexistence theory towards a stochastic theory for species rich communities (sNiche)"
"Functional Information: its potential for quantifying biodiversity and its relation to ecosystem functioning. Function, Information and Biodiversity (sFIND)"
Individual Postdoc projects:
"Drivers of plant diversity across spatiotemporal scales: integrating ecological, evolutionary and environmental processes”
Postdoc: Juliano Sarmento Cabral (University of Göttingen)
"Assessing extinction: Crossover of geometrical, macroecological and Bayesian perspectives”
Postdoc: Petr Keil (Charles University in Prague)
