Janišová, M; Wellstein, C; Willner, W; Dengler, J: Succession, restoration, and management of dry grasslands – Special Feature with contributions from the 7th European Dry Grassland Meeting 2010 in Smolenice., Tuexenia, 31, 227–234 (2011)
Key words: nt, conference report, conservation, Central Europe, European Dry Grassland Group (EDGG), Festuco-Brometea, Koelerio-Corynephoretea, Molinio-Arrhenatheretea, phytosociology, Smolenice Grassland Declaration, Trifolio-Geranietea sanguinei, vegetation classification
We first report from the 7th European Dry Grassland Meeting held 27 May to 1 June 2010 in Smolenice, Slovakia, devoted to the main topic “Succession, restoration and management of dry grasslands”. Apart from the scientific programme and the excursions, we also summarise the outcomes of the General Assembly of the EDGG and present the Smolenice Grassland Declaration. Then we take stock of the dynamic development of the European Dry Grassland Group (EDGG), report on its activities during the past year, and announce its future plans. Finally, we give a short introduction to the four articles of this Special Feature, which deal with bio- diversity patterns, vegetation classification, and dynamics of dry grassland habitats. One presents a detailed phytosociological study of the xeric and mesic grasslands of the Slovak part of the Biele Karpaty Mts. The second provides a new numeric approach to the assignment of relevés to syntaxa and exemplifies this in a case study for the delimitation of the classes Festuco-Brometea against Trifolio- Geranietea sanguinei in Austria. The third article investigates the septennial impact of mouflon grazing and weather on dry grassland plant communities in dry grassland patches of the Czech Republic. The fourth article deals with long-term abandonment of grasslands in Central Slovakia and shows the importance of vegetation structure, ecological stability, and low-disturbance regime for specific ant assemblages.
