We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
Damage to critical infrastructure caused by climate hazards could triple by the 2020s and multiply over ten-fold by the end of the century.
In an article recently published in Ecology, JRC scientist Giovanni Strona, together with Professor Werner Ulrich (Nicolaus Copernicus University) and Nick Gotelli (full professor at University of Vermont, and one of world’s most influential numerical ecologists), has developed an innovative single procedure that allows researchers to visualize the structural patterns of ecological matrices in a bi-dimensional landscape of significance and effect size. This extremely informative approach could be key to resolving longstanding debates in the analysis of ecological matrices.
