Ytterligare informationDue to logistical constrains, the number of students is limited to 20 participants. There is no course fee, however students are expected to cover their travel and accommodation costs during the course.
The course activities at the SLU Alnarp will be coordinated by Igor Drobyshev (Inst. för Sydsvensk skogsvetenskap). In particular, he will be responsible for inviting presenters for the course lectures, distributing course materials (research papers), and arranging two excursions to locations in Southern Sweden. He will also arrange video linking and recording of the lectures and seminars at SLU Alnarp. Among confirmed presenters are a researcher from St. Petersburg State University (Asiya Zagidullina), senior researcher from Iceland Forest Research (Olafur Eggertsson), and Professor of University of Latvia (Guntis Brumelis). We also plan to involve a number of professors at Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre. The course activities in Georgia will be coordinated by Lars Drossler, currently holding an Associate Prof. position at Ilia State University in Tbilisi (Lars.Drossler@iliauni.edu.ge). During this component of the course, the studies will be presented with a series of lectures on biodiversity and its conservation in Georgia and will visit several national parks in the country.
