In May 2018 a Spanish team of scientists from the Agencia Estatal Consejo Superior De Investigaciones Cientificas (CSIC) and Universidad Rey Juan Carlos (URJC) initiated some of the first secondments funded by the Gypworld project hosted by Tarbiat Modares University and the University of Tehran.
During their stay the Gypsum Ecosystemes Meeting was held where the following presentation were given:
- Vegetation responses to experimental climate change in a semiarid shrubland growing on gypsum soil – José Ignacio Querejeta (CSIC),
- Tracking the long-termdynamics of biodiversity with collaborative networks and Citizen Science – Begoña García (CSIC),
- Plant communities on gypsum soils in Central Spain – Arantzazu López de Luzuriaga (URJC),
- Unveiling fine scale assembly rules with spatial statics in gypsum soil habitats – Adrián Escudero Alcántara (URJC),
Here are a few photographs of some of the highlights from the meeting:
