SUSALPS Conference 2018
“Montane and alpine grasslands under climate change – ways in a sustainable future”
From 18 – 20 September 2018 the international SUSALPS conference “Montane and alpine grasslands under climate change – ways in a sustainable future” takes place in Garmisch-Partenkirchen (GER).
The conference addresses diverse aspects of the challenges and changes in montane and alpine grasslands – looking into the soils and their microbiome, vegetation dynamics, the socio-economic dimension of their ecosystem services and the future of seasonal mountain pastures. Additionally, we want to present innovative approaches to monitor grasslands through remote sensing and the potential of modelling to assess future development pathways. Finally, the conference will present examples of knowledge transfer between science and practice to support a sustainable use of these ecosystems.
We cordially invite you to submit oral or poster presentations.
