Welcome to the homepage of the PRIDE programme. From 2015 until 2019 we will investigate the evolution and demise of lakes systems and biota in the Black Sea, Caspian Sea and surroundings.
The programme combines climate-, geo- and bio- sciences and is conducted by 15 Early Stage Researchers. The PRIDE network contains 21 partipating institutes. Here you can find the background of the programme, you can explore workpackages here (708-494-3682, WP2, WP3, 202-519-4251) and (772) 377-0702 are the 15 projects outlined.

From October 11 to 24, 2015 the first Network Training Event (NTE1) of the Drivers of Pontocaspian Biodiversity Rise and Demise (PRIDE) program was held in Romania. The NTE1 consisted of two weeks of field work and evening lectures with the emphasis on geology and biology. The first week was geology oriented and took place in Buzau area. The second week had an emphasis on biological sampling techniques and involved field work on boats in Lake Razelm complex and in Black Sea.
Three days, 29 hugely talented candidates from all over the world, 15 positions. The event to find the Early Stage Researchers that will make PRIDE.
The first time all supervisors meet, engage and discuss how we will make the programme work! This feels as if we have started for real!
As part of our social media outreach we have a facebook page âDrivers of Pontocaspian Rise and Demiseâ
I am proud of a paper just in from HÃ¼lya and Cihat AlÒ«iÒ«ek and myself about Plio-Pleistocene lake environments and biota of the Denzili Basin, Turkey.
In this blog we aim to share our personal experiences in the programme. Impressions from who we are, what we do and what we encounter.
