Almo Farina, Professor of Ecology at Urbino University (Italy), will deliver a lecture:

 "I consider the field of soundscape ecology a true frontier of ecology, offering a new perspective to investigate the complexity of our world. I am sure that educating people in listening to the sounds of nature and those produced by human activity will guarantee a better understanding of the dynamics and roles of living beings." Almo Farina

Soundscape ecology has recently exhibited an enormous surge of research that has demonstrated the ability of acoustic information to be an efficient tool for describing complex ecological phenomena at community, ecosystem and landscape scales within both natural and human dominated systems and according to short and long term perspectives.

Almo Farina´s lecture is about soundscape ecology as a promising discipline that will aid in understanding global threats of biodiversity under scenarios of climatic change and a rapid evolution of human societies.

 

The lecture is held in English. No fees.

 

Following the lecture, IRI THESys and the Geography student council cordially invite to a barbecue in Adlershof!
