This post refers to the new issue 57 of Palaearctic Grasslands, which you can read here.
This new issue comes with the results of the elections for the new EDGG Executive Committee 2023-2025 together with a presentation of the new chairs and their responsibilities in the Committee, and the goodbye and thank you to our former members Anna Kuzemko and Iwona Dembicz.
PG57 also includes the full call of the 18th Eurasian Grassland Conference in Szarvas (Hungary), for which registration is already closed after a deadline extension until 15 July.
As usual, the photographic part of the issue is outstanding. This time, besides the pictures included along the issue, we can enjoy a photo story from the Kharkiv Region in Ukraine, once again a witness of the natural heritage that is suffering from the Russian invasion. A ray of hope is brought by the reports of three grantees by the EDGG Fund for Ukrainian Scientists.
Lastly, I would like to remind you that Palaearctic Grasslands usually includes calls to participate in Special Features, projects and others. This time, Anna M. Csergő invites researchers to participate in a long-term demographic study of Salvia nemorosa, and The Royal Society Publishing announces the Photographic Competition 2023. By the way, our own Photo Competition “The colour blue in grasslands” got 31 photos submitted! The winners will be announced and their photos published in our next issue.
