Denmark 2013

23rd Workshop CCE & 29th TF meeting ICP M&M
The Workshop and the Task Force meeting has been held, under the patronage of the Department of Bioscience, Aarhus University, from 8-11 April 2013 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Important objectives of the meetings included:

  1. Presentations on field measurements and model assessments addressing plant species diversity
  2. Progress on the development of biodiversity indicators (including the WGE initiative)
  3. Progress and training session addressing (NFC-) specific issues on dynamic soil-vegetation modelling and call for data that was sent to you recently
  4. Summary of integrated assessment applied to the Gothenburg protocol
  5. ICP M&M - workplan and other Task Force issues
