This page contains an overview of papers that RECARE project partners are planning to submit to refereed journals, to public websites or to other public media under the 'flag' of the RECARE project, or in which the RECARE project is somehow involved.
A new intended publication by CSIC has been added.
RECARE partners are invited to review and respond to this manuscript if they feel the need to do so. Please go to the Planned Publications page (login required).
Although there is a large body of knowledge available on soil threats in Europe, the complexity and functioning of soil systems and their interaction with human activities, climate change (CC), and ecosystem services (ESS) is still not fully understood.
Therefore, the workpackage 2 team of the RECARE project has organised an Ecosystem Services workshop in Wageningen on May 19th 2014. The purpose of the workshop was to exchange background information of the concept of Eco System Services and their interaction with the main topic within RECARE: Soil Threats.
The presentations given by Leon Braat, Mark Everard and Gudrun Schwilch have been recorded. These video recordings have been added to this website, and are available from the workshop information page or on the RECARE Vimeo channel.
