LTER Routes - Mesothalassia

Follow Mesothalassia live ont their blog.

In Italy, Scientists involved in Long Term Ecological Research (LTER-Italy network) and biodiversity investigations (EU-LifeWatch Research Infrastructure) will drive citizens along three different routes with the aim of fostering their awareness on ecosystem diversity, conservation and sustainability. These routes are organized as scientific communication events associated to EXPO2015 and are endorsed by the National Research Council of Italy (CNR).

Mesothalassia is a bike tour across mid-southern Italy aimed at communicating the fundamental importance of water as a source of life, biodiversity, food and energy. The journey along the Mesothalassia route has been conceived and organized by the ecologist Domenico D'Alelio and is coordinated by the Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn of Naples (SZN). It will take place from 28th June to 7th July 2015 and it will connect two LTER stations in ten legs through Molise, Apulia, Basilicata and Campania regions.

Ricercatori italiani, impegnati nelle Ricerche Ecologiche di Lungo Termine su ecosistemi (Rete LTER-Italia) e biodiversità (LifeWatch), percorrono assieme ai cittadini tre itinerari di divulgazione scientifica, come eventi di comunicazione della scienza a EXPO2015, patrocinati dal Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR).

Mesothalassia è una ciclo-staffetta di divulgazione scientifica con tema principale l'acqua e la sua importanza come fonte di cibo, energia e biodiversità. Il viaggio, ideato e diretto dall'ecologo Domenico D'Alelio e coordinato dalla Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn di Napoli, si terrà dal 28 giugno al 7 luglio 2015 e unirà due siti di ricerca ecologica di lungo termine, passando dall'Adriatico al Tirreno in una decina di tappe, attraverso Molise, Puglia, Basilicata e Campania. Il viaggio partirà da Petacciato Marina (CB) e terminerà con due giorni di eventi tra Ischia e Napoli, dopo aver attraversato numerose località di importanza naturalistica, culturale ed economico-sociale, riserve naturali, siti archeologici, borghi, piccole realtà produttive agro-alimentari.

Mesothalassia prevede numerose attività di divulgazione scientifica, dimostrazioni di osservazione di piante e animali fuori e dentro le acque di mari, fiumi e laghi. La ciclo-staffetta sarà un evento aperto a tutti e aggregherà a ciascuna tappa amanti di bici e natura dalle Regioni attraversate. Un reportage del viaggio sarà presentato a Milano il 29 luglio 2015 al Padiglione Italia di EXPO2015, in occasione della giornata LTER e LifeWatch.
