The coronavirus is spreading more and more, and as I am in my ‘isolation’ spot (an idillyc one if i can say that), more out of prevention, civic sense and preference for ‘staying out of trouble’ than out of fear, I have began to think.
This week I have been to an exhibition-event all about the current status of aquaculture. Exhibitors both from industries and academic backgrounds were present for two full on days of exchanges about the future of our food.
Have you woken up recently to go for a walk around the neighbourhood park just to find all (or at least most) of the trees cut down?
Well, it turns out you are not alone!
Last week I spoke about the wonderful world of intertidal habitats like wetlands and their functioning in terms of ecosystem services and in particular carbon storage,
But what are we really talking about when we talk about carbon storage to mitigate emissions ?
As I explained last week, plants play huge role in trapping carbon from the atmosphere - and so a supposedly ‘easy way’ to offset emission is to plant some greens..
but how does this work in practice ?
Tomorrow is world wetlands day (marking the date of the adoption of the Convention on Wetlands on 2 February 1971 in the Iranian city of Ramsar on the shores of the Caspian Sea) and for the occasion I decided to dedicate this week's post to the wonderful world that lies between the sea and the land - those transitional ecosystems that are partly exposed to water and partly exposed to air..
Well, wetlands are an even more particular version of a ‘transitional ecosystem’
