Disentangling the complexity and variability of Mediterranean temporary ponds (habitat type *3170)
The event will take place at the Botanical Garden of Rome (Italy) on 9-11 March 2022, hosted by Sapienza University of Rome.
It aims at exchanging knowledge and good practices on the interpretation, conservation and management of EU freshwater habitats, in particular the Mediterranean temporary ponds.
Throughout this gathering, Natura 2000 practitioners are invited to share experiences, forefront methods, lessons learned and results in an interactive and interesting way. We will also get to know each other better, strengthen our relationships and have thought-provoking conversations and debates.
Partecipants will get to meet a wider audience of international experts, including public authorities, researchers and managers of LIFE projects, to discuss the identification, conservation and management of one of the dominant vegetation communities of the Mediterranean temporary ponds (Isoëto-Nanojuncetea).
Experts will also possibly observe or participate in the translocation activities of some of the habitat's keystone species whose propagation is currently tested in the Botanical Garden of Rome (project LIFE PRIMED).
