O Projeto EXTREME estuda a libertação de voláteis inflamáveis durante fogos controlados em Albany Pine Bush Preserve, EUA

This video presents the work carried out by the EXTREME project team during their stay in Albany Pine Bush Preserve, in which measurements of volatile organic compounds released by vegetation during a fire were made using a specialised open-field infrared spectrometer (OP-FTIR). Measurements were made with the OP-FTIR equipment in pre-fire situations, in experimental burn trials with branches and needles of Pinus strobus L. and Pinus rigida Mill. as well as measurements during controlled fires in four different management units of the Albany Pine Bush Preserve: Dromedary, Dorsum, Cupcake and Asphalt. The controlled fires were carried out in different fuel types, topography and wind creating a diversity of situations that enriched the interest of the results.The EXTREME project (PCFI/GFC/0078/2018) - "Influence of volatile organic compounds (VOC) in the extreme behaviour of forest fires" - is a project funded by the Foundation for Science and Technology, coordinated by the New University of Lisbon and having as partners CEABN-InBIO (ISA/ULisboa) and the Faculty of Science of ULisboa.

Urban trees, Lisbon

Award-winning filmmaker Johan Heurgren and his team followed the office and field work of the Lx-Tree project between 31 July and 03 August. The filming will be part of an international documentary about trees in the city and their benefits for the community. The Lx-Tree project illustrates the diversity of species and the ecosystem services provided in a city like Lisbon.

Redução de emissões e as plantações de nova geração no Brasil

Our researcher Miguel Bugalho gives his opinion on reducing emissions through a new generation of plantations in Brasil. This is a short video from "PlantNation", that is an online community for anyone that wants to talk about planted forests. Talking together, learning from and with one another, making use of diversity and creating synergies will lead us to find solutions to nowadays challenges. To know everything about "PlantNation" please access here! (Please note that this video is in Portuguese).

CEABN 2016 (English Version)

In this video we present the Centre for Applied Ecology "Prof. Baeta Neves" (CEABN), that is, who we are and what we do.This video was produced to celebrate our 20th anniversary and the 100th anniversary of the birth of Prof. Baeta Neves, former Professor at the Higher Institute of Agronomy and pioneer of the nature conservation in Portugal.

CEABN 2016

English version named "CEABN 2016 (English Version)".

Exposição "Imagem útil em Ecologia"

This exhibition illustrates, through a hundred images and texts, the different ongoing research areas of CEABN InBio and the importance of image in science communication. It is also the first initiative that marks the celebration of the 20 years of CEABN existence and the 100th anniversary of the birth of Prof. Baeta Neves. You can visit this exhibition until the 29th of January 2016. (This video is only available in Portuguese).

Masters of fire

Directed by Nadine Ribet, throughout the film, we discover new fire practitioners across several Mediterranean countries (Portugal, Catalonia, Sardinia, Corsica). They are foresters, forest fire fighters, fire fighters and engineer in pasturland management. Their respective missions are civil security, forest protection against fire, rangeland management or the management of protected natural areas.

A Sustainable Forest

New York Times story featuring Cork Oak and Olm Oak ecossystems in Portugal, presented by our coleague Luísa Nunes.

Battle Behind the Bottle

Students in the award-winning Pace University course "Producing the Documentary" highlight the unseen issues within the cork industry in Portugal. The students wrote, filmed and produced the entire project, traveling to Porto, Coruche & Lisbon to research and film.

The Salamander Paradox

Directed by Francisco Manso, this documentary shows the experience in fire techniques useful in the prevention and wildfire firefighting.

O Paradoxo da Salamandra

English Version named "The Salamander Paradox".

Memórias de Fogo

English version named "Fire Memories".

A outra face do fogo

English version named "Fire in the balance".

Fire in the Balance

Directed by Francisco Manso for the FIRE PARADOX project, this documentary focuses on prescribed fire as a forest management and prevention component. This issue is of particular importance to Serra do Gerês, with its great Natural Park regularly devastated by wildfires and where there is an ancient tradition of fire use for grazing.

Fire Memories

Directed by Frederico Miranda, "Fire Memories" is a documentary that aims to show the memories of old forest Masters who have devoted their lives to the forest.

Fire in Cold Land

Directed by Nadine Ribet, this documentary is focused on a small town in Northern Portugal, where it's common to see fires in the mountains. Known as "Terra Fria" (Cold Land) because of its altitude, its Continental climate and the omnipresence of granite, this area is used to burnings. The impressive visibility of the fires, or of their traces, contrasts with the invisibility of those who've lit them.
