Abstract: The 2017 Eurasian Grassland Conference will take place from 4th to 11th July 2017 in Riga, the capital of Latvia. This is the 14th annual conference of the EDGG, the organization which aims to promote exchange and collaboration between those interested in all aspects of semi-natural and natural grassland research and conservation across Palaearctic realm. The conference is intended to bring together latest research, and to link this to practical management and policy contributing to the sustainability of semi-natural and natural grasslands. Emphasis will be placed on the cases where grassland ecosystems are shared between man-made and natural geographical borders. For the first time the conference will be jointly organised by two countries (Latvia and Lithuania), so providing an excellent opportunity to visit a range of semi-natural grasslands in Eastern Baltics. The event will be hosted by the University of Latvia, the Latvian Botanical Society and the Nature Research Centre in Lithuania. The conference will include the following sessions: Ecological, biogeographical and phytosociological boundaries / Grasslands on borders: environmental and agricultural policies / Overcoming marginality of semi-natural grasslands in agricultural landscapes / Networking and best practices for grassland conservation.
