Main Event ERN 2022 -UM-Workshop-“Life in extreme conditions”

Life in extreme conditions.

Schedule, Workshop


Video. Visualization of natural media with extreme environmental conditions (e.g., without light and with scarcity of resources in caves, in environments with high concentrations of salts, extreme temperatures (freezing, heat) in water, extreme aridity in periods of drought) and some of its species of characteristic invertebrates adapted to live in such conditions.

 Mesoscosmos. Recreation of different environments with extreme conditions in mesocosmos (aquariums, terrariums) with some of its characteristic species. It will be an interactive activity where participants can measure the specific conditions in each mesocosmos and observe the species.

Posters. Explanatory posters relating specific adaptations to resist or tolerate such extreme conditions and their applicability in the fields of medicine, industry, etc.
