O Seminário “Paisagens Fire-smart. Criando territórios resilientes ao fogo” terá lugar na Escola Superior Agrária do Instituto Politécnico de Castelo Branco, no dia 8 de novembro de 2019. Neste seminário pretende-se discutir um conjunto de questões relacionadas com a abrangência e eficácia da prevenção de incêndios florestais, tendo como base o conceito de “Fire Smart Territory”, que representa uma perspetiva na gestão dos incêndios florestais assente numa nova relação das comunidades, organizações e instituições com o fogo, com o objetivo de promover a segurança e o desenvolvimento sustentável. O seminário é organizado pela Escola Superior Agrária do Instituto Politécnico de Castelo Branco em conjunto com a Associação Portuguesa de Ecologia da Paisagem.
- Modelos de gestão do espaço rural e silvicultura preventiva.
- O ordenamento da paisagem na prevenção de incêndios florestais.
- Sistemas de informação e de comunicações de emergência e sua integração nos processos de decisão.
- Gestão do fogo e comportamento de fogos extremos.
- Meteorologia, previsão e gestão do risco.
- Gestão e valorização da biomassa nos espaços rurais.

IV ICLE Iberian Conference of Landscape Ecology 2018
‘Landscape as model and infrastructure for societies’ adaptation to global change’
November 8-9, 2018, Faro, Portugal
The 4th Iberian Conference on Landscape Ecology (IV ICLE) was held at the Faculty of Sciences and Technologies (FCT), the University of Algarve (www.fct.ualg.pt) in Faro, Portugal, 8-9 November 2018. The theme of the conference was “Landscape as model and infrastructure for societies’ adaptation to global change”. Nine keynote speakers presented their studies on different landscapes and themes, namely from mountainous areas to lowlands and river and coastal landscapes, from semi-natural areas, to rural, forest and urban environments, from management strategies for the reintroduction of the Iberian Lynx to ecosystems services both in urban and non-urban environments, and from modelling tools to landscape perception and public participation. Circa of 30 presentations were made grouped in 5 themes: (1) Landscape ecology and landscape planning and design, (2) Integrated management of rural landscape and nature conservation, (3) Landscape sustainability and resilience, (4) Landscape and ecosystem services, and (5) Landscape pattern, process and perception (www.apep.pt).
In the afternoon of the 2nd day, a field trip was organised to the Serra of Monchique (Algarve). This Serra is considered both as a hot-spot of Mediterranean biodiversity and worldwide. The aim was to evaluate and discuss planning and management alternatives to prevent forest fires. A very dramatic fire recently occurred in this Serra in late August 2018 and considered as a possible consequence of climate changes in this area of the South of Portugal.
The IV ICLE aimed to continue the Iberian collaboration on Landscape Ecology identifying lines of collaboration between the scientific communities of Portugal and Spain, to consolidate the Portuguese Association of Landscape Ecology (APEP) and to further develop the newly formed Spanish Association of Landscape Ecology (AEEP), as members of the International Association of Landscape Ecology (IALE) and the European Association of Landscape Ecology (IALE-Europe). This conference was jointly organized by the Algarve University (FCT) and the University of Lisbon (Centre for Applied Ecology Prof. Baeta Neves – CEABN / InBIO), APEP and SALE, with the support of IALE Europe. This event was an opportunity to Iberian landscape ecologists to discuss current relevant topics to human society, e.g. climate change adaptation and mitigation, both at ecosystems and landscape levels, pointing to improvements in this scientific area. Simultaneously it was an opportunity to exhibit the most recent findings produced by the Iberian Peninsula scientific and professional communities that apply landscape ecology principles and tools to planning, management, and conservation of the natural and cultural heritage of the Iberian landscapes.
By André Botequilha-Leitão (FCT, Universidade do Algarve)
The Genius Loci is at the centre of landscape research, be it from the perspective of natural or social sciences, the humanities or design disciplines. Genius loci has been defined as the spirit of the place characterising a particular landscape (Pedroli, 2000, 15). Although modern society seems to have lost the ability to observe the landscape as a whole, and be aware of a sense of belonging and identity (Senge et al., 2004), in many places of Europe “people continued to worship the natural characteristics of the landscape as a source of truth, beauty and justice” (Pinto Correia et al., 2018, 6).
“Soulscapes: in search of genius loci” intends to provoke a scientific reflection on how landscape reveals the way people relate to their physical and spiritual environment (Bockemuehl, 1992, 13). Intrigued by the assumption that “every place should have a spirit” (Day, 1990, 107), we invite interested researchers and students to enter into dialogue about the homogenising of the landscape due to which gradually the genii loci are lost (Antrop, 2000, 32).
The landscape is tangible out there and simultaneously a mental reality (Antrop & Van Eetvelde, 2017, 392). Since the soul of a place might be characterised as “the intangible feeling – made up of so many things” (Day,1990), we welcome an exchange of thoughts about these ‘things’. This includes the sacrality of landscapes (Verschuuren & Furuta, 2016; Day, 2012, Julian Holloway, 2003), which are animated by a health-giving spirit, as discussed by Day (1990), but also the healing and therapeutic landscapes presented by Relf (2006) or Van Elsen et al. (2014).
The participants are also invited to bring new thoughts and approaches to issues related with cultural landscape services, a topic of relevant research currently in Landscape Ecology.
The conference is structured in four panels, aiming at contemplating the theme from four angles:
