    Proceedings of the X International Crane Conference : [21–27 August 2023, Tartu, Estonia]
    (Estonian University of Life Sciences, 2023)
    We warmly welcome you to Tartu for the X International Crane Conference, hosted by the Estonian University of Life Sciences and organised in cooperation with the European Crane Working Group and the International Crane Foundation. We would like to thank our sponsors very much for their support of the meeting. Every few years, crane enthusiasts in Europe meet at international crane conferences. The conferences have now taken place in six different countries: Hungary, Germany, France, Spain, Sweden and Estonia, in many of these countries at least twice. It was 34 years ago, in 1989, the last crane conference was held in Estonia, just after the first meeting in Hungary in 1985. A lot has changed since then, both in the world and in our knowledge of the biology and ecology of cranes and the need for international cooperation to organise successful conservation. For many years now, our colleagues from practically all over the world have been attending the International Crane Conferences in Europe to share knowledge and experience. The last time we met in 2018 at the 9th International Crane Conference in Arjuzanx, France, we agreed that we would meet again in 2022 in Estonia. However, this plan has been changed due to the global pandemic, but it has taught us how to run events through various online platforms and, surprise, the work can be done successfully, and conferences can be attended without leaving home. We will have to see how it works in the next few days. Sadly, many of our colleagues are absent today due to war in Ukraine. In 2023, the X International Crane conference will be held from 22–25 August in the main building of the Estonian University of Life Science in Tartu, Estonia. The symposium aims to share knowledge on cranes from across the globe, with information presented on their ecology, management and conservation. We have excellent speakers from Eurasia, Africa and America, with 36 oral presentations and 7 posters covering a variety of crane species. 78 delegates from 19 countries will attend the conference. We hope you will discover Tartu town, the second largest city in Estonia with a population of nearly 100,000 people. It is a historical Hanseatic City and a central university town. Dating back to 1030, it is the oldest City in Estonia. We encourage you to visit the University of Tartu’s main building, the Town Hall Square, Toome Hill, the Estonian National Museum and St John’s Church, famous for its thousands of medieval terracotta figures. We look forward to seeing our old friends and meeting new ones. Welcome! Ivar Ojaste, Estonian University of Life Sciences, on the name of the Organization Committee

    Liigikaitse Eesti ajateljel : [konverents 14.-15. augustil 2018 Tallinnas : valik ettekannete lühitekste]
    (Eesti Loodusfoto, 2019) Kull, Tiiu (koostaja)
    Looduskaitse Eestis on üle sajandi vana. Selle üks osa, liigikaitse, sai seadusliku aluse 1936. aastal, mil esimesed liigid riikliku kaitse alla võeti. Järgnenud aastakümned on olnud tunnistajad suurtele muutustele: suurenenud on ohud, kaitstavate liikide arv, kaitsemeetmed, samuti meie arusaamad kaitse olemusest. Ühtlasi on paranenud meie teadmised liikidest ja nende vajadustest. Siiski pole teadmisi elurikkuse koosseisust, seostest ning nende alalhoidmise viisidest kunagi liialt: me ei tunne kaugeltki hästi kõiki oma kaasmaalasi teistest organismirühmadest. Eestis on registreeritud veidi üle 29 000 liigi, aga ilmselt on nende arv vähemalt kolmandiku jagu suurem. Osa neist elutseb meie endi teadmata meie vahetus läheduses. Ei saa kaitsta seda, mida sa ei tea ega tunne. Eesti liigikaitse konverentsil 16.–17. augustil 2018 Tallinna loomaaias arutleti oluliste liigikaitseliste küsimuste üle praeguses ajas ning vaadeldi meie kaasmaalaste seisundit koos muutustega ajateljel. Osa ettekannete lühitekste on jõudnud ka siia kogumikku, et jätta püsivam jälg meie looduskaitse ajalukku. Konverentsil peetud ettekannete slaidid on avaldatud Keskkonnaameti kodulehel: punane-nimestik/liigikaitsekonverents-2018 Loodame, et peagi avaneb võimalus nende teemade juurde tagasi tulla uuel konverentsil.

    Proceedings of the conference "Nature Conservation Beyond 2010" : May 27-29, Tallinn, 2010
    (Estonian University of Life Sciences, 2010)
    HISTORY OF NATURE CONSERVATION IN ESTONIA. The historical development of nature conservation ideas can be divided into a number of phases. A simple division identi - fies five phases in the international development of nature protection in Europe, as in Estonia: (1) the common law phase, (2) the phase of narrow regulations restricting the use of nature resources, (3) the protection of nature monuments and species protection, (4) the establishment of multifunctional protected areas, and (5) the nature protection outside protected areas, cross-sectoral approach to preserving landscape and biological diversity. First, the roots of nature conservation stem from folk religion. Records from the 13th century speak of sacred trees and groves that were worshipped and preserved. The era of narrow restrictions on the use of natural resources followed. According to historical documents, in 1297 the Danish King Erik Menved issued a strict order to prohibit the cutting of coastal woods on four islands near Tallinn. This is the first known Act at the national level to establish nature conservation over a relatively large area in Estonia. The more systematic study of nature and propagation of nature conservation ideas started in the middle of the 19th century. The first protected area in Estonia was established in 1910: a bird sanctuary was created on the Vaika islets of the west coast of Saaremaa. The first Nature Conservation Act was passed in 1935. World War II and the starting Soviet Era disrupted the nature conservation activities. It was not until 11 July 1957 that the third Nature Conservation Act was passed; it was the first Act on nature conservation in the Soviet Union. The first protected area based on international principles – Lahemaa National Park, the first national park in the entire Soviet Union – was established in 1971. In 1981, Lahemaa became the first Estonian protected area to receive a development plan, the predecessor of the modern management plan. One of the key nature conservation decisions in newly independent Estonia was to preserve the continuity of protected areas: areas that had been granted protection in the Soviet era remained under conservation in the Republic of Estonia, regardless of land ownership. The Protection of Natural objects Act enacted in 1994 served as the foundation of this principle. From the mid-1990s, nature conservation in Estonia has been characterized by assumption of the obligations of EU nature con - servation and applying the concept of the nature protection outside protected areas, cross-sectoral approach to preserving landscape. Currently, the primary basic piece of legislation governing nature conservation in Estonia is the Nature Con - servation Act (2004). As of 2010, Estonia is party to around ten international treaties that directly or indirectly deal with protection of flora and fauna. Hanno Zingel, Kalev Sepp

    Environmental adaptation: from molecules to the planet : the Estonian Centre of Excellence in Environmental Adaptation ENVIRON. Final conference : October 1-3, 2015, Dorpat Conference Centre, Tartu, Estonia : abstract book
    (Eesti Maaülikool, 2015) Ostonen, Ivika (editor); Kurvits, Tiia (editor)
    Ecosystems have a large capacity to adapt to environmental perturbations, but so far, most of the future projections of global change ignore the adaptation responses. The Center of Excellence (CoE) of Environmental Adaptation (ENVIRON) was launched in August 2011 for a period of almost five years to study mechanisms of environmental adaptation from molecular to global scales, and feedbacks between plant and ecosystem adaptation and climate change. The CoE encompasses five teams from three Estonian universities: Plant physiology and biosphere-atmosphere interactions (Prof. Ülo Niinemets, Estonian University of Life Sciences), Plant signals (Dr. Hannes Kollist, University of Tartu), Plant-pathogen interactions (Prof. Erkki Truve, Tallinn Technical University), Plant ecophysiology (Dr. Anu Sõber, University of Tartu) and Landscape ecology and ecotechnology (Prof. Ülo Mander). ENVIRON currently involves altogether 55 senior staff members and 50 PhD students, and has developed excellent field and laboratory setups to gain insight into the influences of stress on plants and ecosystems, including SMEAR Estonia and FAHM, the free air humidification facility. Interdisciplinary experimental and modeling approaches have been used to scale from molecular stress response mechanisms to ecosystem adaptation by analyzing abiotic and biotic stress effects at phenotypic, physiological and molecular levels, and determining the limits of adaptation to multiple sequential and interacting stresses. The key tasks of the ENVIRON were:  studying the molecular mechanisms of key abiotic and biotic stress sensing and downstream signaling leading to adaptation in several classical model systems in controlled conditions, e.g., Arabidopsis, Triticum and Populus;  characterizing the mechanisms of stress elicitation and synergistic and antagonistic effects of multiple stressors at ecosystem level and concomitant modifications in trace-gas emission patterns, carbon, nitrogen and water balance, carbon sequestration and vegetation capacity to alter atmospheric quality, transmissivity and cloud formation;  studying changes in the gene expression patterns and of the population genetic structure to gain insight into local adaptations associated with modifications in genotype frequency under different long-term stresses;  characterizing the role of the phylogenetic, structural and functional structure of soil microbial community (soil metagenome) in determining the adaptive capacity of soil microbial community and the effects of these key microbial community characteristics on biogeochemical cycling of carbon and nitrogen;  simulating the effects of soil-vegetation-atmosphere feedbacks at ecosystem, regional and biome scales. 4 As the keynote talks and poster presentations at this conference demonstrate, ENVIRON has made major progress in all these directions and contributed to the training of a new generation of scientists who will keep working at the most exciting question: How does the biosphere adapt to climate change? Apart from the excellence in basic science, the consortium has importantly contributed to development of the Estonian National Adaptation Strategy for Climate Change that will serve as a foundation for sustainable management of natural resources of Estonia. Hereby I welcome the participants of the final conference of ENVIRON and hope that the next three days will bring lots of stimulating presentations and insightful discussions. It has been a pleasure and privilege to lead ENVIRON and witness the hard work of its members that have guaranteed the success of the consortium in addressing its research agenda. Wishing you an excellent conference! Ülo Niinemets Head of the Centre ENVIRON
