First complete call

The 18th Eurasian Grassland Conference (EGC) will take place in Hungary, from 25 September to 1 October 2023. The conference is organized by the EDGG, the Seed Ecology Research Group at the Centre for Ecological Research and the Körös-Maros National Park Directorate. It is supported by the IAVS, the Centre for Ecological Research, the Körös-Maros National Park Directorate, and the Kiskunság National Park Directorate. The theme of the 18th EGC is 'Conservation and management of grasslands in transforming landscapes'. The conference aims to improve our knowledge on the flora, fauna, diversity, management, and restoration of Palaearctic grasslands in changing landscapes.

This year's conference offers four keynote talks, an optional workshop and an optional post-conference excursion, in addition to the talk and poster sessions, mid-conference excursion and grassland party. On 25th September, participants will have the opportunity to participate in a workshop 'Introduction to grassland-related spiders', led by Róbert Gallé and Nikolett Gallé-Szpisjak. We welcome Corradó Marceno, Denys Vynokurov, Szabolcs Lengyel, and András Kelemen as our keynote speakers. The mid-conference excursion will take us to the famous Hungarian 'puszta' in the Körös-Maros National Park, and a three-day optional post-conference excursion will take place in the diverse and spectacular grasslands of the Kiskunság National Park (29th September – 1th October). Both excursions will be guided by botanist and zoologist experts and we will have the possibility to observe unique geomorphological features, endemic and rare plants and animals, best practices and challenges for conservation and restoration as well as field experimental sites.
