Grasslands in a Global Context Symposium
The International Grasslands Symposium, Grasslands in a Global Context, will be held at Kansas State University. With the development of Konza Prairie as a global research platform in grassland studies coinciding with the benchmark 30th and 40th year anniversaries of our research station and LTER program, the stage is set for a synthesis of past, ongoing and new research results in the context of global understanding of grassland systems. This symposium, sponsored by Kansas State University and the Institute for Grassland Studies will provide a forum for a synthesis to identify generalities in the structure and function of grassland and savanna ecosystems around the globe, recognizing continental level differences of critical importance, while identifying significant research gaps that can drive future studies.
