15th Eurasian Grassland Conference

This conference will be aligned by the Eurasian Dry Grassland Group (EDGG), the Department of Environmental Biology - Sapienza University of Rome and the Majella National Park.

Main topic of the conference

Cooperating for grasslands: from habitat interpretation to conservation measures


Grasslands are being addressed by a high number of projects aimed at conserving their biodiversity and the wide range of ecosystem services they provide. Still these projects are jeopardized by the challenges that derive from grasslands intrinsic features: the fine grain at which they should be analysed, the complexity that derives from their extraordinary biodiversity and variability, and their tendency to change rapidly in response to various natural and human drivers. Although local information is particularly important, a set of shared principles, methodologies and procedures would make the efforts to maintain grasslands across the Eurasian continent substantially more effective. The topic of the conference is therefore to address the main grassland conservation issues by establishing a basis for cooperation projects within the framework of the EDGG.
