Notes

Abstract: Understanding fundamental aspects of the dynamics of tropical savanna ecosystems can be substantially improved by means of models linking key processes at the level of landscape, communities, population and ecophysiology. Such models are also very important as an aid to understand the impacts of global environmental changes on tropical savanna ecosystems, such as the efforts to assess the impacts of global climate change on Venezuelan savanna ecosystems. During the week of October 28 to November 1st, 1991, a workshop on the "Ecological Responses of Venezuelan Savannas to Global Climate Change" was held in Mérida, Venezuela, convened by the Center of Ecological Research of the Tropical Andes (CIELAT) of the Science School of the University of the Andes (ULA) and the Venezuela Case Study of the PAN EARTH program. The meeting was also attended by researchers from the Center of Modeling and Simulation (CESIMO) of the Engineering School of ULA and the Natural Resources and Ecology Laboratory (NREL) of Colorado State University (CSU). The meeting took place at the Latin-american Forestry Institute (IFLA) and was funded by FUNDAYACUCHO. The meeting was planned to explore a possible Cooperative Research Program among the participant institutions which could lead to: -improving the capabilities of Venezuelan researchers on the use of savanna models, -calibrating savanna models at several representative sites in the Venezuelan Llanos, and - understanding of the savanna dynamics at several temporal and spatial scales. As a conclusion of the meeting, a Cooperative Scientific Research Program was designed, which includes a plan with short and long term actions. The central objectives of the program are modelling of savanna dynamics and the responses to environmental changes, using models already developed at CSU and new models which could link the physiological, population, community and landscape levels.
