Export to PDF Add to favourites Email Print
 

1.- Calls for post-doc and PhD candidates

a) Post-doc on "climate change impacts on agricultural crops; mitigation and adaptation measures"

  • Scenarios for climate change affecting main crops in continental Portugal (Temperature extremes, seasonal rainfall, dry spells)
  • Selection of typical tree and vine crops for the assessment studies
  • Changes in crop cycles
  • Changes in occurrence of pests and diseases
  • Changes in water requirements
  • Mitigation and/or adaptation measures relative to foreseen changes

2.- PhD studies

a) "Building scenarios for climate change for selected regions in Portugal"

  •  
    • Analysis of large scale models and respective selection
    • Selecting tree, legume and field crops as reference crops for the scenario analysis
    • Temperature at critical season periods in relation to selected crops
    • Temperature extremes, low and high and dates of occurrence
    • Rainfall: seasonality, dry spells and droughts occurrence

b) Methodologies to assess impacts of climate change on crops pests and diseases

  •  
    • Review present occurrence and related trends of main pests and diseases
    • Review changes in occurrence of pests and diseases in Mediterranean and Atlantic climates
    • Selecting tree, legume and field crops as reference crops for pest/diseases scenario analysis
    • Develop a methodology for deriving changes in pests and diseases from climate changes

c) Climate change impacts on crop water use; water conservation and irrigation

  •  
    • Review crop water requirements for main horticultural and field crops in selected regions of Portugal
    • Review irrigation requirements for those crops through modelling
    • Assess deficit irrigation issues in relation to irrigation systems
    • Assess economic impacts of water saving irrigation
    • Issues on water and irrigation costs and economic water productivity; modelling approaches

d) Changes in cultural practices for perennial horticultural crops as a response to climate change

  •  
    • Identification of impacts for selected crops regarding:
      • Cultural techniques
      • Insufficient chill units accumulation
      • Phenological shifts
      • Fruit quality (color and sunburn)
    • Identification of practices and technologies that may require changes
      • Growth regulators spraying
      • Irrigation
      • Shading
      • Pest management
    • Modelling crop responses to climate: identification of genotypes cultivars with low chill requirement, earlier harvest and robust blush colour

e) Climate change and vulnerability to desertification: assessment, indices and modelling

  •  
    • Investigate applicability of indices relative to the vulnerability to desertification to selected regions in Portugal
    • Assess landscape changes and trends mainly using long term remote sensing images
    • Relating landscape changes with driving forces on climate and social and economic factors
    • Issues in combating desertification
