EURASSIAN GRASSLAND CONFERENCE 2022
Grassland dynamics and conservation in a changing world
The 17th Eurasian Grassland Conference (EGC) will take place in Tolosa, Spain from 12 to 18 September 2022. The conference is organized by the EDGG and the University of the Basque Country. It is supported by the IAVS, the Basque Government, Gipuzkoa Provincial Council, the Town Council of Tolosa, the University of the Basque Country, the Government of Navarre and Hazi (Public agency for rural, coastal and food development). The theme of the 17th EGC is Grassland dynamics and conservation in a changing world. The conference aims to improve our knowledge of the diversity and management of Palaearctic grasslands in face of global change. We intend to emphasize the following topics in five sessions:
1. Succession and species turnover in abandoned grasslands
2. Biodiversity of urban grasslands
3. Above and belowground grassland diversity
4. Grassland conservation and global change
5. Classification of Palaearctic grasslands and other open habitats
This year’s conference offers three keynote talks, two optional workshops and an optional post-conference excursion, in addition to the talk and poster sessions, mid-conference excursion and grassland party. On 12th September, participants will have the opportunity to participate in two workshops: i) Meet the Editors of high impact ecology and vegetation journals, ii) workshop on Orthoptera, led by Rocco Labadessa. We welcome Alfonso San Miguel, Monika Janišová and Arkadiusz Nowak as our keynote speakers. The mid-conference excursion will take us to Aizkorri-Aratz Natural Park, and a three-day optional post-conference excursion will take place mostly in Navarre (16–18th September). This region is located at the intersection of three biogeographic regions: Atlantic, Mediterranean and Alpine. Participants will have the opportunity to see grassland landscapes of those biogeographic zones, learn about their flora and fauna, and observe grassland uses. Below you will find the programme.
