In 2008, the Working Group will held its first scientific meeting, jointly with the German Arbeitsgruppe Trockenrasen. The Dry Grassland Meeting 2008 will take place in Kiel at the German Baltic coast from 28 to 30 August 2008. The two major topics of this conference are:

  • Dry grasslands in a changing environment (Management of dry grasslands in cultural landscapes, NATURA 2000; conservation of rare species; Changes of land use, eutrophication, and succession; invasion of neophytes - problems and solutions for dry grasslands)
  • Vegetation databanks and large-scale classifications of dry grasslands

The program consists of 1 days of lectures and poster presentation and 1 day of excursions to dry grassland areas in Schleswig-Holstein. The conference language will be mainly English although German contributions are also allowed. You are cordially invited to participate in this first conference of the Working Group. Registration is possible until 15 June 2008. For further information, see the conference homepage.
