GrassNet Workshop 2011

Workshop 2011

Natural grasslands are the world’s largest multifunctional terrestrial ecosystems covering more than 30% of the global land surface. Climate change and global socio-economic scenarios offer multiple future perspectives for grassland systems. Although uncertainties are high, science is challenged to develop and adapt research concepts and methods.
Drivers changing grassland systems are manifold and effects might be visible on different scales with highly variable impact on the system’s functions and services. Networking and interdisciplinary is one strategy to face these multiple challenges:      

The GrassNet Workshop 2011 is supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). The GrassNet project combines research and education in a cross continental network for sustainable adaptation of grassland ecosystems vulnerable to climate change.
