The 2018 Eurasian Grassland Conference “Cooperating for Grassland Conservation” (EGC 2018) will take place from 4th to 8th June 2018 in Sulmona, a town in the heart of Italian Apennines. It will be the 15th annual conference of the EDGG, which aims to promote exchange and collaboration between those interested in all aspects of semi-natural and natural grassland research and conservation across Palaearctic biogeographical realm.
The Eurasian Grassland Conference is the biggest activity of the Eurasian Dry Grassland Group (EDGG, www.edgg.org) that runs annually in several places of Europe (and hopefully Asia and northern Africa in the near future). EDGG is an official group of the International Association for Vegetation Science (IAVS, www.iavs.org) aiming at the compilation and the distribution of the information on research and conservation in natural and semi-natural grasslands of Palearctic realm and the stimulation of active cooperation among grassland scientists (exchanging data, common data standards, joint projects).
