The German-Italian Summer School on Alpine Plant Demography will occur on August 23-29, in Alagna / Passo dei Salati, Italy. It is being organized in cooperation with the University of Turin (UNITO), the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU), the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity (iDiv) and the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research- UFZ.
This summer school aims to provide an introduction to the demographic study of plant populations. This school will teach students how to collect plant demographic data in the field and how to perform basic demographic analyses that link abiotic drivers (e.g., climate) to plant population dynamics (e.g., population growth rates, extinction probability). The students (Master or PhD level) from Germany and Italy are welcome to participate.
The applications’ period is open until March 13.
