15/06/2020 Edit

Jacquemyn:

What are abrupt changes? What is the difference between trophic cascades and feedbackloops + exampels + how are they linked to abrupt changes? What is the consequence on global ecosystems? What can be do about it?

What are the most threatenig pressures on marine ecosystems today + how can this be made more sustainable?

Honnay:

Question about land sharing/sparing, see 20/06/2019

12/06/2020 Edit

Jacquemyn

Give all currently available tools for managed relocation with examples + list the main disadvantages and how to cope with them

Jacquemyn

What are abrupt changes? Feedback loops and Trophic cascades. What could be the consequences on global scale (figure of land use change of Earth through time!) and what can we do about it? Planetary boundary framemwork & sustainable society measures. He asked about the Maya's and the criticisms of the PBF

What conversation translocation tools are available? Give definition + examples. What are their main disadvantages and how can we counter these?

Honnay

Land sparing and land sharing, examples. Land sparing is regarded as the best one if food rise were to increase, why? Disadvantages of land sparing.

What is biological control? What are the reasons that companies, people, government don't promote it. (one of last slides with the opinion of several instances, for example against own market (companies of pesticides))

Somers

Crowdsourcing, explain.

22/06/2017 afternoon Edit

Jaquemine:

a) explain how global change is affecting human health and human societies through examples (sea level rise, more disease outbreaks, etc.)

b) How can we make human societies more sustainable and at the same time conserve biodiversity (answers: stabilize/reverse human population growth, bio fuels and more use biological controle/land sparing)

Honnay:
