May 22-27, 2015: 12th European Dry Grassland Meeting (EDGM)- FROM POPULATION BIOLOGY TO COMMUNITY ECOLOGY
Mainz, Germany

Palearctic dry grasslands have a long tradition of community analysis and description, leading to a detailed picture of these habitats, especially in Central Europe. In contrast, research on the biology of species and populations, such as pollination biology, dispersal ecology, demography or population genetics, is expanding rapidly. The connection between the two scientific disciplines is often weak although, actually, populations are part of communities and communities consist out of populations. We will therefore focus on this connection between population biology and community ecology for all dry grassland biota (invertebrates, vertebrates, non-vascular plants, vascular plants, fungi and lichens) as the overall topic of the next EDGM. Specific topics of the conference

  • Population biology of dry grassland species
  • Diversity and community ecology of dry grasslands
  • Management and conservation of dry grasslands
  • Socio-cultural aspects of dry grasslands
