Dry grassland workshop
A 3-day workshop on "Dry grasslands in a changing environment" is being held at the Ecology Centre, University of Kiel, Germany between 28th and 30th August 2008. Contributions will address aspects of management of dry grasslands in European cultural landscapes, threats due to changes of land use, air pollution, and eutrophication, as well as invasion of neophytes and conservation of species.
Furthermore, conference topics include large-scale classifications of dry grasslands and vegetation databanks. On Saturday, the excursion will visit coastal and mainland dry grassland sites in Schleswig-Holstein under different management and discuss conservation issues with stakeholders.
