13th Eurasian Grassland Conference
The 2016 Eurasian Grassland Conference will take place from 20 – 24 September 2016 in the historic town of Sighişoara in central Romania. This is the 13th annual meeting of the EDGG, which aims to promote exchange and collaboration between those interested in all aspects of grassland research and conservation across Eurasia. The conference is intended to bring together latest research, and to link this to practical management and policy contributing to the sustainability of semi-natural grasslands.
The conference will include the following sessions:
· Semi-natural grasslands and environmental policy and socio-economy
· Landscape scale processes and historical evolution of semi-natural grasslands
· Ecology and biodiversity of semi-natural grasslands
· Management, conservation and restoration of semi-natural grasslands
as well as two optional pre-conference workshops and two field trips in local biodiversity hotspots. All other topics related to semi-natural grasslands are also welcome. A special issue of an ISI listed journal related to the conference is planned, to which all contributors to the conference will be invited to submit papers.
The second circular of the conference is available for download.
We invite you to register and submit abstracts for talks and poster via the website
